Record #117277:

The greenhouse effect and the growth of ice sheets / Tamara Shapiro Ledley, S. Chu.

Title: The greenhouse effect and the growth of ice sheets / Tamara Shapiro Ledley, S. Chu.
Author(s): Ledley, Tamara Shapiro.
Chu, S.
Date: 1992.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1992.), Vol. 73(14, spring meeting supplement) (1992)
Abstract: Abstract only. Water-carrying capacity of air could increase due to warmer temperatures induced by increased levels of atmospheric CO₂, and this would cause larger snowfall rates. If increases in summer temperatures are small, permitting snow cover to survive throughout summer, ice-sheet growth could be initiated. In this study, coupled energy balance--thermodynamic sea-ice model is used, which computes precipitation and snowfall rates, to examine possibility that this mechanism could produce ice-sheet growth.
