ISSM Sea-Level Workshop 2018
The next ISSM 2018 workshop will take place at the University of Hawaii Sea Level Center, in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. June 11-12. The workshop will be right after the AOGS 15th Annual Meeting.

The University of Hawaii Sea Level Center, in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and University of California at Irvine will host the 2018 Sheet System Model (ISSM) Sea Level Workshop. This will be the first time an ISSM workshop is dedicated to Sea-Level Science. Within this context, the workshop will take place June 11-12 at the at the East-West Center on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. It will be hosted by Pr. Phil Thompson of the University of Hawaii Sea Level Center and sponsored by the N-SLCT NASA Science Team.

Interactive sessions will be offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Updates to ISSM since the 2016 workshop, including user-requested features will be presented. Specific focus will be on tutorials that allow users to make use of ISSM's SESAW capabilities. This will include computation of sea-level fingerprints using GRACE based estimates of ice-mass changes, use of high-resolution meshes to refine sea-level estimates in specific areas of the world, and computation of resulting stresses in the Earth crust (including lateral and vertical displacements). Participants will be invited to showcase their work during an open poster session, and science talks will be organized around relevant topics.

For this year's workshop, we are asking participants to bring their own laptops, and if possible to install ISSM (we now have binaries that can be downloaded directly) before arriving to the workshop. In case this is not feasible, a small number of laptops will be made available on site. If needed, please let us know ahead of time.

You will also find the agenda and practical information here:

We hope the workshop will generate fruitful interactions between our team, the growing community of ISSM users, and the broader sea-level science community.

Thank you for your participation!
