It’s been a couple of months since the last project update. In that time, we have been making progress in four main areas:
(1) Developing the statistical framework
The main purpose of our early experiments was to test and improve … Continue reading
A new PhD opportunity is available, allied to the GlobalMass project, with the aim of producing a consistent, rigorous sea level record for the 20th and first two decades of the 21st century from a combination of tide gauge data, … Continue reading
Last week Stephen Chuter gave a talk at the 2017 West Antarctica Ice Sheet (WAIS) workshop in Seattle, USA. His presentation (‘Mass budget reassessment of the Abbot and Getz sectors of West Antarctica‘) described how mass balance estimates … Continue reading
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 … 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 … 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 … 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 … Continue reading
