Session C04 – PROGRESS IN QUANTIFYING ICE-SHEET SURFACE MASS BALANCE: PAST,
PRESENT AND FUTURE
The deadline for abstract submission is Monday 18 February 2019.
*C04 – PROGRESS IN QUANTIFYING ICE-SHEET SURFACE MASS BALANCE: PAST,
PRESENT AND FUTURE*
Conveners: Cécile Agosta (France), Miren Vizcaino (Netherlands), Yetang
We focus on the surface mass balance (SMB) of ice-sheets, including
individual mass balance components, feedbacks and associated uncertainties,
and advancing process understanding from models (regional and global)
and/or observations (ground-based and remote). Topics include but are not
- Quantification of ice-sheet SMB and its uncertainties for the recent
past (1850-present) including melt, runoff, sublimation, refreezing, and
- Advances in the understanding of key processes relevant for surface
mass fluxes, including for example, surface and firn hydrology, drifting
snow, and the effect of impurities on melt
- Quantification of feedbacks between ice sheet SMB and components of
the climate system at decadal to centennial time scales, including mass
balance – elevation feedbacks, linkages to sea surface conditions, and
impacts of storm tracks and large-scale circulation patterns.
- Projections of ice sheet SMB for the next decades to the next century
and associated uncertainties, from regional and global climate models.
