Ice Core Young Scientists (ICYS) is pleased to announce a new international ice-core seminar series, with the support of the International Partnership in Ice Core Sciences (IPICS).


ICYS will hold monthly seminars with two talks – one from a senior researcher, followed by an early-career researcher (ECR) in a similar research theme. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Organizers hope that this will be a good way to bring together international ice-core-related research.

The series aims to provide much needed scientific interactions between researchers at all stages in their careers, especially given the cancellation of in-person conferences at this time.

Today's program - 12 May 19:00-20:00 UTC

The fourth seminar involves:

Senior speaker: Eliza Cook "Volcanism and the Greenland ice-cores: a new tephrochronology framework for the last glacial-interglacial transition based on cryptotephra deposits in three ice cores"

ECR speaker: Niccolo Maffezzoli "Automatic and continuous detection of ice core particles via deep learning"

How to join
