On the Puzzling Features of Greenland Ice-Core Isotopic Composition; Copenhagen, Denmark, 26-28 October 2015 — The modern cryosphere is in fast transition and the ongoing rapid demise of Arctic sea ice may instigate abrupt changes on the Greenland Ice Sheet.

Greenland ice cores show clear evidence of past abrupt events with up to 15{degree sign}C warming in less than a decade (Dansgaard/Oeschger cycles). These are believed to be associated with rapid changes in Arctic sea ice, but the underlying mechanism for these rapid oscillations are unclear. The Ice2ice initiative seeks to quantify these past rapid responses in temperature and ice coverage on land and in the ocean to improve our understanding of the Arctic future.

Twenty scientists gathered in Copenhagen at the end of October 2015 as part of this initiative to discuss the most recent observational, technological, and model developments that have updated our scientific understanding and interpretation of the changes recorded in Greenland
