The structure of firn, how this structure subsequently changes, and how changes in the structure affect both the physical and chemical behaviors of firn are not well understood. This workshop will bring together both scientists and engineers who are recognized experts on firn together with newcomers to the field to discuss issues associated with understanding firn and its behavior. The workshop will consist of invited talks, substantial time for discussion, and contributed posters.

Please contact Professor Ian Baker ( if you are not presenting at this workshop but would like to attend.

A live stream of the oral presentations will be broadcast during the event (requires QuickTime). The recordings will be archived and made available for viewing after the event.
