IACS Divisions

IACS is organized in 6 Divisions:

Division I Snow and Avalanches
Division II Glaciers
Division III Ice sheets
Division IV Sea Ice, Lake and River Ice
Division V Cryosphere, Atmosphere and Climate
Division VI Planetary and other Ices of the Solar System

The role of Divisions is to further the scientific objectives of IACS. Each Division is represented on the IACS Bureau by a Division Head. IACS Working Groups are overseen by an appropriate Division.

The former division II Glaciers and Ice Sheets was split into two separate divisions in September 2019 (when the IACS Statutes were updated).
