Land ice

Progress (April 2018)

Considerable progress has been made with regards to using a BHM approach to understand ice mass trends for Antarctica and Greenland. Using a BHM framework allows us to produce statistically-rigorous estimates of ice sheet mass balance and the contribution of component parts at the drainage basin scale. Error-bounded estimates of Antarctic ice mass balance trends have now been obtained for 2003 to 2015 (an update of RATES project), and we have recently started to apply the BHM framework to explore mass balance trends for Greenland.
