Scope Glaciology conducts academic research on snow and ice using a wide variety of methods such as observation, sampling, laboratory experiments, and numerical calculations. Since 2020 Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has had a critical impact on the global society, whereas it may derive "new-normal" regimes. Glaciological studies have also had some impacts, such as the cancellation of scheduled overseas surveys and user number restriction in laboratories, but their severity depends on their study methods. How long period of data lacking is allowed on long-term continuous observations? Is there another alternative approach? Will information and communication technologies that are rapidly becoming widespread for web meeting and/or remote work contribute for glaciological studies? In this session, regular reports of research results are welcomed. In addition, in this year, we will share various issues caused by the pandemic and their solutions. Discussing the new normal of the glaciology, furthermore, we aim to contribute for developing a more resilient and sustainable academic community of glaciology than before.
