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) to sea level rise since 1992 (i.e. during the ‘satellite era’).
The second talk presented the post-processing strategy we have developed to establish a novel GPS dataset that aims to provide a ‘clean’ signal with respect to glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA).
The event was co-sponsored by DTU Space and Polar DTU at the Technical University of Denmark, University of Tasmania, Australia and the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research – Solid Earth Response and influence on Cryosphere Evolution (SCAR-SERCE). It provided a forum for discussion of how geodetic observations are used to validate, or are assimilated into, models of GIA and/or are used to constrain models of present-day ice mass change through measurements of elastic rebound.
