*C04 – PROGRESS IN QUANTIFYING ICE-SHEET SURFACE MASS BALANCE: PAST,
PRESENT AND FUTURE*

Conveners: Cécile Agosta (France), Miren Vizcaino (Netherlands), Yetang
Wang (China)

*Description*

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
limited to

   - Quantification of ice-sheet SMB and its uncertainties for the recent
   past (1850-present) including melt, runoff, sublimation, refreezing, and
   snow accumulation.
   - 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.
