Record #126150:

Modelling of glacier mass balance / Johannes Oerlemans.

Title: Modelling of glacier mass balance / Johannes Oerlemans.
Author(s): Oerlemans, Johannes.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Ice in the climate system. (1993.),
Abstract: Shows that energy-balance model is able to generate realistic mass-balance profiles from climatic data for glaciers in widely differing climatic settings. Mass-balance profiles of 12 selected glaciers, for which good observations exist, are used for this purpose. Discusses results of sensitivity test, in which input temperature and precipitation are varied. Sensitivity of mass balance depends strongly on climatic conditions: maritime glaciers are more sensitive to temperature change than dry subpolar ice caps. Extrapolation to all glaciers and small ice caps is attempted. For uniform 1 K warming, global mean change in specific balance is --0.40 m water equivalent. Assuming associated increase in precipitation proportional to saturation vapour pressure reduces this to --0.31 m water equivalent.
