To reduce the uncertainty in the calculation of Antarctic solid ice fluxes, the firn depth correction (Dh) in Antarctica is inferred from a steady-state firn densification model forced by a regional atmospheric climate model. The modelled density agrees well with observations from firn cores, apart from a site at the origin of fast flowing West Antarctic ice stream (Upstream B), where densification is anomalously rapid. The spatial distribution of Dh over Antarctica shows large variations… CONTINUE READING
