New papers published

The GlobalMass team have recently written or contributed towards two new papers.

First, three of our team were part of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Global Sea Level Budget Group that authored the Global Sea Level Budget 1993-present, published in Earth System Science Data. This benchmark paper provides a comprehensive ‘state of the science’ review of global mean sea level, and is the result of an international effort involving the sea level community worldwide assessing the various data sets used to estimate components of the sea level budget during the satellite era. The paper is open access and the accompanying data are freely available via SEANOE.

Also now accepted for publication is our first paper about how we have been developing the Bayesian Hierarchical Framework (BHM): ‘Bayesian model-data synthesis with an application to global Glacio-Isostatic Adjustment’. This paper provides details about how we have extended the BHM approach to address non-stationary (i.e. spatially variable) global processes, such as glacio-isostatic adjustment (GIA). The paper will be published shortly in Environmetrics, but a pre-print is already available on arXiv.
