Global ice trends
« on: January 25, 2021, 06:24:38 PM »
Unable to find a sub forum for global ice, so I will put this very important review paper here. Moderators may like to move it elsewhere

I think we should rename this Global ice trends and collect those papers here for an overview.

They get posted. This had also been posted in the SLR thread where it will be buried in other subjects soon. It is also in What is new in the Arctic.

In this thread we could collect the links to such reports.

This one is new in methodology but there is at least one other long running series we could add.
Þetta minnismerki er til vitnis um að við vitum hvað er að gerast og hvað þarf að gera. Aðeins þú veist hvort við gerðum eitthvað.

Hot from the press here are some graphs from the GRACE / GRACE-FO satellite series on the Greenland (GIS) and Antarctic (AIS) Ice sheets. Data is to mid-December.

They come from the JPL's PO.DACC system @
https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive/files/allData/tellus/L4/ice_mass/RL06/v02/mascon_CRI

You have to register with PO.DACC system but that is no problem.

Jan 2021 data from the JPL @
https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive/files/allData/tellus/L4/ice_mass/RL06/v02/mascon_CRI
(you have to register to det the data.)

Large Antarctic Ice Sheet mass loss exceeds Greenland Ice Sheet mass gain.

Here's a link to an interactive portal in TU-Dresden, includes GRACE/GRACE-FO graphs per basin and whole ice sheets:

Thanks nukefix.

Unfortunately the data ends in Dec 2017 when the original GRACE satellites started to fail.
It has not been kept going to include the new GRACE-FO data - which is a great pity.

But I get data every month or so from GTZ by basin - always a month or two after I get the JPL summary data (i.e. AIS total only). The January and Feb 21 basin data could be really interesting.
