BPCRC & CCAPP Joint Workshop 2022


The Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC) and the Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics (CCAPP) are planning a joint meeting to discuss interdisciplinary overlap, sharing of data and complementary methods of studying ice sheets. Each attendee has been asked to prepare a brief presentation that will help frame the following roundtable conversation. Attendees in need of further assistance with this can refer to the meeting contacts listed below. 

CCAPP will be discussing their work at South Pole Station involving neutrinos, where they drill ice and install sensors that might have an ability to provide our teams with additional data. They will also be discussing the study of ice sheets in relation to the IceCube Experiment. We have much to understand about the ice (density, index of refraction, attenuation, ice flow, layering, birefringence) that is relevant to neutrino detection, and may be of interest to ice experts too. 

BPCPC will be discussing their own work in the South Pole as OSU's foothold in polar research, spanning over topics including but not limited to environmental geochemistry, geological sciences, glacier dynamics, and glacier environmental change.

Lunch will be catered by CCAPP from Qdoba, with no dietary restriction requests. 

Thursday, May 12th, 2022 from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M.
Physics Research Building, Room 4138
191 West Woodruff Ave., Columbus, OH
