The following blog post, written by GlobalMass team member Stephen Chuter, first appeared as an ‘Image of the Week’ on the EGU Cryosphere Division blog in May 2018 (https://blogs.egu.eu/divisions/cr/2018/05/25/image-of-the-week-antarctica-a-decade-of-dynamic-change/).
Whilst we tend to think of the ice flow … Continue reading
The GlobalMass team has had a new open-access review paper accepted for publication in Environmental Research Letters.
The review provides a new estimate of land ice mass trends during the satellite era (1992 to 2016), focusing on its contribution … 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
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 … Continue reading
A team of scientists, led by the University of Bristol, has discovered that a marked decrease in summer cloud cover during the last 20 years has significantly accelerated melt from the Greenland ice sheet. The new findings, published this week … Continue reading
A press release has been issued about the findings of our latest paper.
To coincide with the publication of the first paper written as part of the GlobalMass project (Constraining the mass balance of East Antarctica), we have produced a plain language summary of the work. In it, we explain the … Continue reading
A paper investigating the mass balance of East Antarctica between 2003 and 2013 has been accepted for publication in Geophysical Research Letters. A key finding is that ice mass gains in the East Antarctic Ice Sheet are less than ice … Continue reading
