Side Meeting on Monday


Onshore to Offshore glacial reconstruction of Terra Nova Bay, Western Ross Sea

Date&Time July 22(Mon), 13:00-15:00 Venue Room #207
Contact Jamey Stutz
Description of Meeting

This side meeting will provide an update to two workshops held at the 2017 PAIS and 2018 SCAR POLAR conferences. Our aim is to combine onshore and offshore data to provide a regional glacial reconstruction of the Terra Nova bay area. New terrestrial chronologies from cosmogenic surface exposure dating will provide a history of ice-surface lowering for major outlet glaciers (David, Mawson, Priestley, Reeves and Campbell) while newly acquired marine-sediment cores and marine-geophysical observations will constrain the past extent, timing and behaviour of marine-based grounded ice. We recognize the history of research on this topic in this area and propose this workshop as an opportunity to involve the wider glacial-geology community. We look forward to 1) discussing results - we expect to provide opportunities for 3 short presentations, 2) further developing ideas for regional collaboration/synthesis and 3) continuing to collate all relevant data (Terrestrial, marine, model inputs). This side meeting is open to all and participation from students and early career researchers is highly encouraged.


Ross Sea Region Collaboration and Coordination Workshop

Date&Time July 22(Mon)-23(Tue), 13:00-15:00 Venue Room #206
Contact Alex Isern , Nancy Bertler , Wilson Sauthoff
Description of Meeting

This workshop is designed as a follow up meeting from the 1-day Ross Sea Region and Collaboration workshop to be held on 21 July 2019. The suggested meeting here is to facilitate focused discussions on topics identified on the 21 July to allow for wider participation of interested researchers. We propose two such follow up meetings (Mon and Tue), one for physical and one for ecosystem research. Further information will be provided once the conference schedule is published. This will allow us to plan the two sessions with the least overlap to relevant conference sessions.


APECS event

Date&Time July 22(Mon), 18:00-20:00 Venue Room #207
Contact Lara F. Pérez
Description of Meeting

APECS is organizing special side meetings during the symposium that allow Early Career Researcher (ECRs) to come together, discuss about their careers and have some informal mentoring from Senior Scientist. Please refer to the following link for the details. (

Side Meeting on Tuesday


Bedmap3 Core group meeting

Date&Time July 23(Tue), 11:00-13:00 Venue Room #207
Contact Peter Fretwell
Description of Meeting

The newly formed SCAR Bedmap3 Special Action Group will meet to discuss plans on the first phase of the Bedmap3 project. This phase will include mainly data collection, formatting and assimilation. The group will discuss data sources, and will formulate requests to the community for ice thickness datasets. BAS scientists will discuss plans for data storage, accreditation and levels of data access to the core group.
Subsidiary datasets, such as surface elevation models, grounding lines and a timeline for the construction of the initial product will also be on the agenda.



Date&Time July 23(Tue), 13:00-15:00 Venue Room #207
Contact Jan Erik Arndt
Description of Meeting

The International Bathymetric Chart of the Southern Ocean (IBCSO) is a collaborative effort to compile all available bathymetric information of the Southern Ocean. IBCSO Version 2 will cover the area up to 50° S. Work on it is in progress. We invite everybody working with bathymetric data and especially data holders to the meeting. Topics in the meeting cover for example: Identification of last data sets to be included, metadata, sub-ice shelf bathymetry, topography, gridding methods and status.

Description of Meeting

SCAR Expert Group: Antarctic Digital Magnetic Anomaly Project (ADMAP)
The ADMAP2 compilation and release paper were published and made available online in summer 2018. The group subsequently met at the SCAR OSC in Davos to discuss available data and options for future versions of the compilation. The side meeting at the ISAES in Incheon will be used to continue that discussion, and to identify the group's goals for follow-up publications to the release paper.
SCAR Action Group: Connecting Geology and Geophysics (CGG)
CGG met at the SCAR OSC in Davos and discussed input for the new Gondwana map and the Tectonic Map of Antarctica. At ISAES we will briefly review old and new key areas and group goals.

Side Meeting on Wednesday


General Topics

Date&Time July 24(Wed), 11:00-17:00 Venue Room #207
Contact Yayue Sun
Description of Meeting

Since 1987, the International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences (ISAES) has been held regularly every four years and alternates with SCAR's Biology Symposium. The symposium aims to bring together Antarctic earth scientists from different areas in order to gather and highlight their outstanding expertise and ideas. The Symposium includes the following themes :Continental evolution of Antarctica;Antarctic solid earth structure and interactions with cryosphere; Past and present permafrost changes in Antarctica; Glacial history of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean; Antarctic surface processes and landscape; Changes in the Southern Ocean; Climate change in the 21st century Antarctica and the evolution of life; Remote sensing and satellite;General Antarctic earth sciences. It covers all research directions about Antarctic region,with a high level and great influence.


Integration and Joint Inversion of Geophysical Data

Date&Time July 24(Wed), 13:00-15:00 Venue Room #206
Contact Mustafa Senkaya
Description of Meeting

Geophysicists are in a challenge to reveal the condition of the Earth that is most likely inaccessible and generally complex or uncommon such as polar region. Also, the data used is nevermore complete, includes noise from many sources and has strongly non-linear behavior. For this reason, the evaluation and interpretation of geophysical data suffers from severe non-uniqueness. Integration and joint inversion of different type data could be used to overcome the mentioned issued. In this side meeting, while the basics of integration and inversion process will be narrated, the helpful strategies could be represented with synthetic and field examples.

Side Meeting on Thursday


How to use GeoMAP (v.201907): SCAR GeoMAP Action Group

Date&Time July 25(Thu), 11:00-13:00 Venue Room #207
Contact Simon Cox
Description of Meeting

The SCAR GeoMAP Action Group has built a detailed digital geological dataset of Antarctica. This international collaboration has captured existing geological map data, refined its spatial reliability, improved representation of glacial sequences and geomorphology. Aimed primarily towards continent-wide perspectives and for cross-discipline use, the resulting dataset describes ‘known geology’ of rock exposures rather than ‘interpreted’ sub-ice features. The first ‘beta’ version v.201907 will be made available at XIII ISAES. This side-meeting aims to introduce GeoMAP, provide an overview of GeoSciML data attributes, explain where to get data from, illustrate how data can be queried, and outline how feedback and review can be provided to help improve the next version. Anyone is welcome to attend, but participants will be encouraged to pre-register and bring a laptop loaded with either QGIS or ArcGIS software.

Side Meeting on Friday


Geothermal heat flux

Date&Time July 26(Fri), 13:00-15:00 Venue Room #207
Contact Alex Burton-Johnson
Description of Meeting

The geothermal heat flux to the base of the Antarctic ice sheet is inherently difficult to measure, yet accurate estimates are necessary to better understand cryosphere dynamics. This is crucial to improve models of ice flow, mass loss and sea level change, and optimise site selection for ice core paleoclimate studies. At the POLAR18 meeting in Davos a proposal was put forward to form a sub-group of SERCE focusing on better understanding geothermal heat flux across Antarctica. This ISAES Side Meeting will facilitate a meeting of this sub-group and any other interested delegates to build on discussions that took place at POLAR18 and also the SERCE-funded workshop, “TACtical” held in Hobart in March 2018. We anticipate discussions around community priorities identified at these recent meetings (see report
