Abstract

The 2012 annual meeting of the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology (NAG) took place in Zieleniec, Poland from January 9-12, 2012. It was expertly organised by Krzystof Migala, and attracted 65 participants drawn from 18 countries. Eight young scientists from six countries received support from IASC to cover part of their costs in attending the meeting.

In all, 25 talks and 22 posters were presented and an afternoon was devoted to a discussion of tidewater glacier research in the Arctic – part of an effort being started by the NAG and the IASC Working Group on the Cryosphere to try to develop an ongoing research and training program in this area of science. The follow-up to this discussion was a training workshop for young scientists on board the Polish Research Vessel MV Horyzont II in Svalbard in September 2012, led by Jacek Jania.

At this meeting, Carleen Tijm-Reijmer took over as Chair of the NAG in place of Andreas Ahlstrøm, who we thank for his work on behalf of the network during his term as Chair. It was decided that the next meeting of the NAG will be held in Obergurgl, Austria, in February 2013, and that Carleen would be in charge of the organization.
