TITLE:
The challenge of modeling ice sheets in a changing climate

ABSTRACT:
Ice sheets are dynamic systems that interact with other components of the Earth System and are among the strongest contributors to sea level rise. Observations over the last three decades have shown that the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheets have been losing mass at an increasing rate. How the ice sheets respond to the warming of the ocean and the atmosphere has become today one of the most urgent questions in understanding the implications of global climate change. Numerical modeling is the only effective way of addressing this problem. Yet, despite significant improvements in ice sheet models over the past decade, the predictive skills of the new generation of models remain limited over short time scales (tens to hundreds of years). The primary reasons for this lack of reliability are (1) the level of uncertainty in many important model inputs, such as bed topography, geothermal heat flux or ocean-induced melting patterns, and (2) poor understanding of physical processes such as iceberg calving. Here, we discuss the advent of the new generation of ice sheet models with a more complete physics, present some major challenges that we have overcome, and detail the future challenges of the ice sheet modeling community.

Seismic Wave Attenuation in saturated rocks: theory, laboratory- and numerical-experiments

Abstract:
Geophysical methods allow exploring the subsurface and rely on physical properties of rocks. In the case of seismic tomography, the knowledge of rheology is pivotal to infer the structure and composition of the Earth interior. Nonetheless, very often geophysicists treat geo-material as purely elastic overlooking at the role of viscoelasticity in absorbing seismic energy. During the seminar I will introduce viscoelasticity in saturated rocks and how fluids can produce frequency dependent attenuation and dispersion. Focusing on sandstones saturated with different portions of gas and liquids, I will present laboratory experiments performed to investigate wave-induced-fluid-flow and wave-induced-gas-exsolution-dissolution and how these attenuation mechanisms could be modelled revealing details about subsurface saturation. The present work aims at improving the imaging of subsurface to reveal, for instance, the formation of gas bubbles in volcanic or in oil and gas reservoirs.

Understanding the evolution of the seismic cycle requires both the ability to accurately observe and to model different styles of tectonic deformation in different time scales. The challenge here is not only to break down this complex puzzle of events into discrete time periods, but most importantly to analyze the prevailing factors that control the accumulation (interseismic locking), release (earthquake), and restoration (postseismic and next interseismic phase) of stresses throughout the seismic cycle. Another important factor is the tectonic setting, which generally determines the quality and density of the observations and consequently our efficiency in resolving model parameters. In particular, I will talk about two case studies: first, the seismic cycle around the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica. I will show how this was imaged during the last 20 years by permanent and campaign GPS, measuring late-interseismic coupling, slow-slip events, a M7.6 earthquake in 2012, and its associated afterslip. Furthermore, I will show how interface topography controls the interseismic locking distribution (Kyriakopoulos et al., 2015, JGR; Kyriakopoulos and Newman, 2016, JGR).
In the second part of my talk, I will present an investigation of the M7.2 2010 El Mayor Cucapah Earthquake. Here I combine a 3D finite element model of fault slip fitted to InSAR data of the event, with multi-segment dynamic rupture models that are designed to match this inverted slip distribution. By combining InSAR observations with dynamic rupture modeling, we are able to generate physically-reasonable models that match primary observations of this event.

The influence of the Indian monsoon on productivity and sedimentation in the northern Bay of Bengal over the last glacial-interglacial cycle

The Indian monsoon drives seasonal changes in precipitation and runoff across India as well as circulation and productivity in the northern Indian Ocean. I will present a multi-proxy analysis of a sediment record (since 110 ka) from the offshore Mahanadi Basin recovered during the Indian National Gas Hydrate Program Expedition 01 (Site NGHP-01-19B) within the core convective region of the Indian monsoon. These results highlight the offshore Mahanadi Basin as a supply-dominated margin where terrigenous sedimentation is strongly influenced by monsoon intensity, and that biological productivity is likely limited by variation in monsoon-driven ocean stratification on glacial-interglacial timescales rather than a direct response to monsoon winds. Evidence of reduced chemical weathering and an increase in C4 plant material suggest more arid conditions between 70 and 10 ka. The mass-accumulation rate of CaCO3, a function of marine productivity, drastically increased between 70 and 10 ka and is correlated to a previously-documented increase in Bay of Bengal surface salinity. This evidence for a weakened summer monsoon and reduced stratification between 70 and 10 ka is correlated to elevated eastern Asian dust content in Greenland ice cores.
