The purpose of this symposium is to bring together the community of sea ice researchers in New Zealand to share their recent work and discuss future projects.
Time will be dedicated to the discussion of both theoretical work and field work.
Talks will be given by internationally recognised leaders in the field and also by emerging researchers and postgraduate students.
The symposium will follow on directly from the Snow & Ice Research Group workshop in Queenstown.
Thanks to all those who have submiteed a title. Please prepare a 15 minute talk. An extra 5 minutes has been accommodated for questions.
Please let us know if your have require any special equipment for your talk (other than a laptop & projector or an OHP).
We are very pleased to announce that extended talks will be given by two internationally renowned researchers:
- Miles McPhee (McPhee Research Company, Naches, Washington)
- Vernon Squire (The University of Otago)

Abbey College’s central location, between Cumberland and Castle Streets, is just a few minutes’ walk from all university facilities, the Dunedin Botanic Gardens and the central city.
Parking is available at the venue.
A symposium dinner has been organised for 7pm on Thursday at the University Staff Club. The meal will be a set menu so please let me know if you have any special dietary requirements.
Accommodation & Transport
This is a busy time of year in Dunedin with the students returning and it is a good idea to have accommodation and transport booked early.
There are many motels within a short distance of the University, such as:
Aberdeen Motel, 42-46 Bank Street (03 4730133) www.aberdeen.co.nz
Cable Court Motel, 833 Cumberland Street (03 4773525) www.cablecourtmotel.co.nz
Garden Motel, 590 George Street (03 4778251) www.gardenmotel.co.nz
Owens Motel, 745 George Street (03 4777156) www.owensmotel.co.nz
|On Thursday 18th Feb Air NZ flights arrive at Dunedin||from Auckland at 0910|
|from Christchurch at 0800|
|and from Wellington at 0850.|
The airport is 22Kms from the city and there are two options for transport into town: taxis (roughly $80) or shuttle vans (roughly $25).
The organisers would like to thank the National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research and the Polar Environments Research Theme for their generous contributions to this event.
