    International Symposium on Sea Icefocuses on an interdisciplinary dis-cussion of the geophysics of sea iceand its interactions with the ocean,atmosphere and biosphere. The seaice of the Arctic and Antarctic Seasexerts a major impact on the regionaloceans and atmosphere, concomi-tantly aecting global climate andmodifying the global oceans. It alsostrongly inuences the ecology of thepolar oceans. Contact: InternationalGlaciological Society, Scott PolarResearch Institute, Lenseld Road,Cambridge CB2 1ER, U.K.
