We have been working on some diverse aspects of the project over the summer.
(1) Understanding optimum mesh size
Our early experiments suggested that the mesh size used for the global grid can introduce artefacts or errors into the results, … Continue reading
The GlobalMass project provided two presentations for the 1st circular Workshop on Glacial Isostatic Adjustment and Elastic Deformation held in Iceland this week.
The first talk provided a review of the contribution of land ice (ice sheets, glaciers and ice caps) … Continue reading
We currently have two job opportunities within the GlobalMass team.
The first is for a postdoctoral researcher in geodesy. The post requires a background in solid earth geophysics or geodesy with, ideally, experience in the analysis and interpretation of GPS … Continue reading
Earlier this week Zhe Sha gave an invited talk at the TIES-GRASPA 2017 conference on Climate Climate and Environment in Bergamo, Italy. Her presentation (‘Bayesian estimation of global glacial isostatic adjustment for sea level rise re-evaluation‘) provided an explanation … Continue reading
The GlobalMass project presented two posters at the Regional Sea Level Changes and Coastal Impacts conference, held last week in New York.
The first poster gave an overview of our statistical method and presented some initial results for global … Continue reading
While our efforts have continued to be focused on building and testing our statistical framework, we are also now starting to obtain some ‘real’ results.
As reported last month, it is crucial that our Bayesian Hierarchical Model (BHM) – … Continue reading
GlobalMass team member Maike Schumacher is co-author on two new papers published in Advances in Water Resources.
In the first, (‘Assessing sequential data assimilation techniques for integrating GRACE data into a hydrological model‘) the authors use terrestrial water storage … Continue reading
A plain language summary is now available of the recent paper in Science Advances (‘Decreasing cloud cover drives the recent mass loss on the Greenland Ice Sheet‘) by GlobalMass team members Stefan Hofer, Jonathan Bamber and others.
A key … Continue reading
GlobalMass team members Stephen Chuter and Jonathan Bamber, along with Alba Martín-Español and Bert Wouters, have had a new paper (‘Mass Balance Reassessment of Glaciers Draining into the Abbot and Getz Ice Shelves of West Antarctica‘) accepted for publication in … Continue reading
Last week, Zhe Sha presented a poster about the GlobalMass project at the 3rd UCL Workshop on the Theory of Big Data in London.
Zhe’s poster described some of the challenges associated with spatio-temporal modelling of global sea level change, and … Continue reading
