Presentations at Workshop on Glacial Isostatic Adjustment and Elastic Deformation

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.
