Delighted to announce our new paper on #Antarctica + estimates of surface mass balance is finally out in @EGU_TC
A quick thread on what it means 1/
tc.copernicus.org/articles/15/37…
Surface mass balance (#SMB) is the budget between snow fall and snow/ice loss by melt + runoff and evaporation at the surface. It's the only way #glaciers + #icesheets can gain #ice - it also needs to balance the loss from calving #icebergs.

#SMB is very difficult to measure on the ground, especially over as large an area as #Antarctica, so usually output from a regional #ClimateModel is used. We looked at data from #HIRHAM #MAR #RACMO #COSMOCLM + #MetUM - to see if they agreed

#OlaDeCalor🔥en #Groenlandia esta semana causó masivo evento de #DerretimientoSuperficial q creó enormes Pozas, incluso visibles desde el espacio👇Area afectada (>1millón de km2) perdió en sólo 3 días más de 20mil millones de toneladas🧊#CambioClimatico polarportal.dk/en/greenland/s…
Las “pozas” (#Meltponds) causadas por estos eventos cada vez más frecuentes de #DerretimientoSuperficial son en realidad verdaderos lagos; pueden medir cientos o incluso miles de hectáreas...

Grieta en #PlataformaDeHielo Brunt en #Antartica avanzó casi 30km en últimos 2meses👇Muy cerca, otra enorme grieta (“Chasm1”) está a sólo 2km de generar un colosal #Iceberg de >1500km2 q se llevará consigo los restos de EstaciónHalley🇬🇧 (abandonada en 1992)earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/147799/…
Desde hace un par de años q se espera q la #PlataformaDeHielo Brunt se rompa y genere un enorme #Iceberg
La aparición de nuevas grietas (y su rápido avance) hacen temer q la #PlataformaDeHielo Brunt genere no uno sino dos #Icebergs gigantes
