Recent Antarctic ice mass loss from radar interferometry and regional climate modelling
Observed estimates of ice losses in Antarctica combined with regional modelling of ice accumulation in the interior suggest that East Antarctica is close to a balanced mass budget, but large lossesExpand

A new ice thickness and bed data set for the Greenland ice sheet: 1. Measurement, data reduction, and errors
Ice thickness data collected between 1993 and 1999 using a coherent ice-penetrating radar system developed at the University of Kansas have been combined with data collected by the TechnicalExpand

Bedmap2: improved ice bed, surface and thickness datasets for Antarctica
We present Bedmap2, a new suite of gridded products describing surface elevation, ice-thickness and the seafloor and subglacial bed elevation of the Antarctic south of 60° S. We derived theseExpand

Reassessment of the Potential Sea-Level Rise from a Collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet
Collapse and Rise The West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) is thought to be inherently unstable and susceptible to rapid collapse if it reaches a certain warming threshold. Although such an event isExpand

A new bed elevation dataset for Greenland
We present a new bed elevation dataset for Green- land derived from a combination of multiple airborne ice thickness surveys undertaken between the 1970s and 2012. Around 420 000 line kilometres ofExpand

Higher surface mass balance of the Greenland ice sheet revealed by high-resolution climate modeling.
[1] High-resolution (∼11 km) regional climate modeling shows total annual precipitation on the Greenland ice sheet for 1958–2007 to be up to 24% and surface mass balance up to 63% higher thanExpand

Reassessment of net surface mass balance in Antarctica
Abstract Recent in situ measurements of surface mass balance and improved calculation techniques are used to produce an updated assessment of net surface mass balance over Antarctica. A new elevationExpand

Calving fluxes and basal melt rates of Antarctic ice shelves
Iceberg calving has been assumed to be the dominant cause of mass loss for the Antarctic ice sheet, with previous estimates of the calving flux exceeding 2,000 gigatonnes per year. More recently, theExpand

An expert judgement assessment of future sea level rise from the ice sheets
This study uses a formalized pooling of expert views on uncertainties in the future contributions of melting ice sheets to sea-level rise, using a structured elicitation approach. The median estimateExpand

Partitioning Recent Greenland Mass Loss
GRACE and Movement Together Recent measurements of the rate of mass loss from the Greenland ice sheet vary approximately by a factor of three. Resolving these discrepancies is essential forExpand
