Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the AGU Fall Meeting session 
*EP047: **Coupling of the cryosphere, solid Earth, surface, and climate 
in shaping Late Cenozoic topography 

Session description:
Solid-Earth and climate dynamics interact by jointly setting topography 
and ice cover. They control orographic effects on temperature and 
precipitation; set the pace and focus of erosion and the interplay among 
climate, ice extent, orogenic exhumation, and glacial isostatic 
adjustment; and are recorded by sediments in terrestrial, lacustrine, 
and ocean basins. This session focuses on connections between surface 
processes, including uplift, subsidence, and erosion/deposition, and 
Earth’s interior rheology and dynamics, across the nexus of topography. 
We welcome contributions on data associated with changing landscapes and 
the processes driving their evolution; theoretical and empirical 
explorations of the relationships between mantle dynamics, surface 
processes and glaciations over a range of temporal and spatial scales; 
relationships between surface load redistribution and deformation; and 
feedbacks among rock strength, lithospheric stress, climate, and 
erosion. Model predictions and field observations from regions where 
tectonic processes are coupled with changing cryospheric masses are 
particularly welcome.
