Evaluaton of Antarctic Precipitation Variability

PI: Andrew Monaghan
Institution: Byrd Polar Research Center, Ohio State University
Abstract:
We have recently reconstructed, for the first time, a 50-year record of Antarctic precipitation (1955-2004) based on a statistical blend of atmospheric model and ice core accumulation records. Prior to this, the most reliable record of Antarctic precipitation variability was only 25 years, making it difficult to assess late 20th century trends and interdecadal variability in the Antarctic, where climate variability is known to be very large.
