Arcitc Mass Balance

PI: Cameron Rye
Institution: Cambridge University
Abstract:
I plan to downscale GCM data over Svalbard and Iceland to investigate the future mass balances of these two glaciated regions.

The work will invovle comparing GCM data for the last 40 years with the ERA-40 reanalysis data set and surface observations to derrive statistical downscaling relationships between large-scale and local scale variables.

These relationships will then be applied to future GCM runs to obtain predictions for variables such as temperature and precipitation, which will then allow future glacier mass balance to be estimated.
