Abstract: Changes in glaciers and ice sheets are expected to have a tremendous influence on sea-level rise and global climate change. Many mathematical challenges in simulating ice sheet dynamics arise: ill-conditioned systems; a wide range of scales; complex evolving geometries; ill-posed inverse problems; sparse observational data; large-scale forward and inverse UQ problems in high-dimensions (ˇ°curse of dimensionalityˇ±). Speakers in this MS will present recent developments aimed at overcoming these and other difficulties arising in ice sheet modeling. A broad range of topics will be covered, including forward and inverse problems, UQ, solvers/preconditioners, and coupling to global climate models.
