Improved projections of land ice contributions

An article with the titleAntarctic Ice flow simulated by Elmer/Ice ( Image: Rupert Gladstone) Projected land ice contributions to twenty-first-century sea level rise published in Nature explores the contribution to sea level in the 21st century arising from the world’s glaciers and the Greenland as well as the Antarctic ice sheet.  The study is a synthesis of the research of more than 80 authors from 38 international research groups and brings together both computer models and statistical techniques to make predictions for the latest socio-economic scenarios. It includes results obtained with Elmer/Ice for the Antarctic ice sheet (the only full-Stokes contribution to the study).   Results from this research shall inform the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and contribute its Sixth Assessment report, due to be published later this year.
