Course Objectives         
Based on general concepts of continuum mechanics, we will study the flow and evolution of ice sheets, ice shelves, ice caps and glaciers within the Earth system.

Course Goals         
Students will achieve a comprehensive understanding of flowing ice masses and their role within the climate system of the Earth, and will be provided the background for carrying out own research (for instance, computer simulations) for a master or doctoral thesis.

Course Schedule         
The course will be held October 2020 - February 2021 (15 lectures on Thursdays 14:45-16:15). First lecture: 8 October 2020. Some flexibility in the scheduling is possible; this is open to discussion among the course participants.
