Opening the future at the end of the world
The next ISSM 2020 workshop will take place at the Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI), in Incheon, Korea. June 25-26. The workshop will be right before the AOGS 17th Annual Meeting.
The Korea Polar Research Institute, in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory will host the 2020 Sheet System Model (ISSM) Sea Level Workshop. Within this context, the workshop will take place June 25-26 in KOPRI, Incheon, Korea. It will be hosted by the Unit of Ice Sheet and Sea Level Changes (CHASE) in KOPRI and sponsored by the N-SLCT NASA Science Team and Korean Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries.
Interactive sessions will be offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Updates to ISSM since the 2018 workshop, including user-requested features will be presented. Specific focus will be on tutorials that allow users to make use of ISSM's SESAW capabilities. This will include computation of sea-level fingerprints using GRACE based estimates of ice-mass changes, use of high-resolution meshes to refine sea-level estimates in specific areas of the world, and computation of resulting stresses in the Earth crust (including lateral and vertical displacements). Participants will be invited to showcase their work during an open poster session, and science talks will be organized around relevant topics.

The agenda will be post soon and you will find the practical information from the attached documents.
For this year's workshop, we are asking participants to bring their own laptops, and if possible to install ISSM (we now have binaries that can be downloaded directly) before arriving to the workshop. In case this is not feasible, a small number of laptops will be made available on site. If needed, please let us know ahead of time.
We hope the workshop will generate fruitful interactions between our team, the growing community of ISSM users, and the broader sea-level science community.
Thank you for your participation!
