FIORD: SAGES Forum for Ice-Ocean Interaction Research Development

SAGES, the SFC-funded Scottish Alliance for Geoscience, Environment and Society, has identified ice-ocean research as an area of strength across Scottish universities, and, in an effort to pool ideas and attract new talent to Scotland, has funded the development of a new grouping, "FIORD," the Forum for Ice-Ocean Research Development. We are looking forward to planning a dedicated FIORD Workshop in Scotland later in the year, with a vision of how we can pool our resources to generate some exciting science ideas, and will keep you posted on this.

We wish to involve those MASTS members who have an interest in this area of research but who may not be members of SAGES.  If you would like to be added to the FIORD distribution list please email:

Very best wishes,

Rob Bingham (Edinburgh), Tom Cowton (St Andrews), Finlo Cottier (SAMS), Brice Rea (Aberdeen)
