In Situ Real-time Ice Calving Event Detection

Investigators: Nagiza Samatova, Suren Byna, John Wu, Chris Zou, Dan Martin


Ice calving, i.e., a process of ice breaking off an ice sheet creating massive icebergs, is highly important to global sea level changes. Detecting ice calving events and removing floating ice in real time is necessary to avoid mathematical divergence in AMR-based ice sheet model simulation codes such as BISICLES.
