The GlobalMass team has had a new paper published in Environmetrics: ‘Bayesian model–data synthesis with an application to global glacio‐isostatic adjustment‘.
The paper describes the key methodological developments that we have made to the Bayesian Hierarchical Modelling (BHM) … Continue reading
The GlobalMass project was represented at the recent GRACE/GRACE FO Science Team Meeting (GSTM) 2018 in Potsdam, Germany, by Bramha Dutt Vishwakarma. Bramha also presented a poster summarising our work to date (‘GlobalMass: a Bayesian modelling approach for closing … Continue reading
We currently have a job opportunity within the GlobalMass team at the University of Bristol.
We are looking for a Research Associate/Senior Research Associate to develop and extend the statistical framework (Bayesian Hierarchical Model, or BHM) that forms the basis … Continue reading
This month we are bidding farewell to two of the GlobalMass project team: Zhe Sha and Maike Schumacher
Zhe led our statistical framework work package, and has had the crucial role of extending the Bayesian Hierarchical Model (BHM) approach … Continue reading
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, … Continue reading
The GlobalMass team has had a new open-access paper published in Geophysical Journal International: ‘A new global GPS data set for testing and improving modelled GIA uplift rates‘.
Glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) is the ongoing response of the … Continue reading
Over the past month, GlobalMass team members have presented project outputs at three very diverse conferences.
First, Jonathan Bamber gave two oral presentations at POLAR 2018 in Davos, Switzerland. There, he presented our new estimate of the land ice contribution … Continue reading
GlobalMass team member Bramha Dutt Vishwakarma is the lead author on a new paper published in Remote Sensing (‘What Is the Spatial Resolution of GRACE Satellite Products for Hydrology?‘).
The starting point for the paper is a simple … Continue reading
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 last few months have seen us make progress in two main areas:
(1) Steric sea level change
We have continued to work on what is the first real test of the Bayesian Hierarchical Model (BHM) framework on a global … Continue reading
