Representing Greenland ice sheet freshwater fluxes in climate models

  title={Representing Greenland ice sheet freshwater fluxes in climate models},
  author={Jan T M Lenaerts and Dewi Le Bars and Leo van Kampenhout and M J Vizca{\'i}no and E M Enderlin and Michiel R. van den Broeke},
Here we present a long-term (1850–2200) best estimate of Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) freshwater runoff that improves spatial detail of runoff locations and temporal resolution. Ice discharge is taken from observations since 2000 and assumed constant in time. Surface meltwater runoff is retrieved from regional climate model output for the recent past and parameterized for the future based on significant correlations between runoff and midtropospheric (500 hPa) summer temperature changes over the… CONTINUE READING
