Record #126148:

World sea level and the present mass balance of the Antarctic ice sheet / William Stanley B. Paterson.

Title: World sea level and the present mass balance of the Antarctic ice sheet / William Stanley B. Paterson.
Author(s): Paterson, William Stanley B.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Ice in the climate system. (1993.),
Abstract: To determine whether ice sheets are growing or shrinking by calculating each term in mass budget is not possible at present; uncertainties, particularly in iceberg-calving flux, are too great. Here, approach is to start from observed rise in world sea level over past 100 years, estimate contributions from possible causes other than change on mass of Antarctic ice sheet, and obtain this as residual. Result suggests that grounded part of ice sheet has lost mass at average rate of 235 Gt a⁻¹ during past century.
