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

Slater, T., Lawrence, I. R., Otosaka, I. N., Shepherd, A., Gourmelen, N., Jakob, L., Tepes, P., Gilbert, L., and Nienow, P.: Review article: Earth's ice imbalance, The Cryosphere, 15, 233–246,, 2021

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.

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 @

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

As usual - click to enlarge images
