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.


The first seminar will take place on 25 February from 19:00-20:00 UTC:

1. "Mass spectrometry under the ice", Carlo Barbante (Ca' Foscari University of Venice) (15 min) + Questions and discussion (8 min).

2. "High res = high gain? New frontiers in ice core trace element analysis with laser ablation ICP-MS", Pascal Bohleber (Ca' Foscari University of Venice) (10 min) + Questions and discussion (8 min).

The seminar also presents more details on the new DEEPICE training network:

3. "DEEPICE: A new research & training network on understanding proxies from Antarctic deep ice", Emilie Capron (10 min) + Questions and discussion (8 min).
