The objective of the first Cryosphere Theme Workshop is to bring together representatives from the user and scientific communities to identify the major issues on cryospheric information needs.  The goals are to:
  • review the IGOS Cryosphere Theme proposal history, process, and status,

  • begin to reach a consensus on what is most important to measure, how to measure it, and where to measure it,

  • examine requirements for observations of the cryosphere,

  • discuss issues regarding methodologies, technical and scientific solutions, models, and data handling,
  • further develop the Theme Report outline and the Report draft,

  • expand the Theme Team as appropriate.

Regarding the development of the Theme Report, we will be seeking writing commitments, as well as volunteers for section writing leads and other supporting roles.
