A Reconciled Estimate of Ice-Sheet Mass Balance
Warming and Melting Mass loss from the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica account for a large fraction of global sea-level rise. Part of this loss is because of the effects of warmer airExpand
Rapid discharge connects Antarctic subglacial lakes
The existence of many subglacial lakes provides clear evidence for the widespread presence of water beneath the East Antarctic ice sheet, but the hydrology beneath this ice mass is poorly understood.Expand
Warm ocean is eroding West Antarctic Ice Sheet
[1] Satellite radar measurements show that ice shelves in Pine Island Bay have thinned by up to 5.5 m yr−1 over the past decade. The pattern of shelf thinning mirrors that of their groundedExpand
Recent Sea-Level Contributions of the Antarctic and Greenland Ice Sheets
After a century of polar exploration, the past decade of satellite measurements has painted an altogether new picture of how Earth's ice sheets are changing. As global temperatures have risen, soExpand
Recent dramatic thinning of largest West Antarctic ice stream triggered by oceans
A growing body of observational data suggests that Pine Island Glacier (PIG) is changing on decadal or shorter timescales. These changes may have far-reaching consequences for the future of the WestExpand
Increased ice losses from Antarctica detected by CryoSat‐2
We use 3 years of Cryosat-2 radar altimeter data to develop the first comprehensive assessment of Antarctic ice sheet elevation change. This new data set provides near-continuous (96%) coverage ofExpand
Evolution of supra-glacial lakes across the Greenland Ice Sheet
Abstract We used 268 cloud-free Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images from 2003 and 2005–2007 to study the seasonal evolution of supra-glacial lakes in three different regionsExpand
Larsen Ice Shelf Has Progressively Thinned
The retreat and collapse of Antarctic Peninsula ice shelves in tandem with a regional atmospheric warming has fueled speculation as to how these events may be related. Satellite radar altimeterExpand
Melt-induced speed-up of Greenland ice sheet offset by efficient subglacial drainage
Fluctuations in surface melting are known to affect the speed of glaciers and ice sheets, but their impact on the Greenland ice sheet in a warming climate remains uncertain. Although some studiesExpand
The glaciers climate change initiative: Methods for creating glacier area, elevation change and velocity products
Glaciers and their changes through time are increasingly obtained from a wide range of satellite sensors. Due to the often remote location of glaciers in inaccessible and high-mountain terrain,Expand
