IAPSO is pleased to announce the establishment of a new Joint Commission on Ice-Ocean Interactions (JCIOI) with IACS (the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences).
JCIOI aims to globally coordinating and engaging in research and development related to understanding, observing and modeling ice-ocean interactions. This will include research under ice shelves, at the ice-ocean front in tidewater glaciers, and at the sea surface in the marginal ice zone.
The commission is co-chaired by Dr Felicity McCormack (IAPSO) and Dr Isabel Nias (IACS). For more information on how to contribute, please contact Dr McCormack (
To promote the study of the oceans and the interactions that take place at its boundaries with the sea floor, coastal environment and atmosphere, through the use of physics, chemistry, mathematics and biogeochemisty.
IAPSO gives importance to involving scientists and students from developing countries in oceanographic activities.
