The International Conference «Cryospheric Rebuses»
On April 15-18, 2019 the international conference “Cryospheric Rebuses” (Pushchino Permafrost Conference: Solving the puzzles from Cryosphere”) took place. Traditionally the conference was held in Pushchino on the basis of Institute of Physicochemical and Biological Problems in Soil Science of the RAS with assistance of the Earth Cryosphere Institute of the Siberian Branch of the RAS, Institute of Permafrostology of the Siberian Branch of the RAS, Okabiolab Ltd and the Permafrost Young Researches Network (PYRN).
Several open round tables were held within the conference. One of them was organized by Simmakers company and devoted to verification of initial data and features of carrying out numerical simulations of the permafrost ground thermal regime. The hot topic of the round table “Verification and calibration of initial climatic and geological data for thermal regime prediction of permafrost ground” allowed to attract not only the users of our program, but also the scientific community.
Also Simmakers representatives gave the presentations within the engineering section. Gleb Gribovsky submitted the report on “Verification of climatic and geological data in natural conditions using computer simulation of the permafrost ground thermal regime”, and Yury Romanovsky made the report on “Numerical simulation of heat transfer with ice-water-steam phase change in the permafrost foundation of an elevated flare stack”. Anastasia Makoyed’s report on “Error comparison of numerical solution in various simulation Software with analytical solution of the Stefan problem depending on mesh size” was submitted within the poster section.
