Glacier Volume/Area relation

image SurenGRLIn Adhikari and Marshall (2012, Geophys. Res. Lett.), the 3D high-order Elmer/Ice model is used to investigate how different topographic and climatic settings, flow dynamics, and the degree of disequilibrium with climate systematically affect the glacier volume-area relation. Authors recommend more accurate scaling relations through characterization of glacier-specific morphology. This motivates a revision of global glacier volume estimates, of some urgency in sea level rise assessments.
