Record #119134:

Mass balance of Antarctica and sea level change / Charles R. Bentley, M.B. Giovinetto.

Title: Mass balance of Antarctica and sea level change / Charles R. Bentley, M.B. Giovinetto.
Author(s): Bentley, Charles R.
Giovinetto, M. B.
Date: 1992.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1992.), Vol. 73(43, fall meeting supplement) (1992)
Abstract: Abstract only. Presents new calculations of overall mass balance, based on best available data. Evidence of about 30% increase in snow accumulation over past 30 years. Current positive mass balance, if real, may not be typical of last century, over which sea level rise of 2 mm a⁻¹ has been measured. Future climate warming will cause increased snowfall and probably lead to short-term increase in mass input. Eventually, warmer ocean will accelerate ice-shelf melting and lead to negative overall mass balance.
