Coupling ice sheets into climate models for self consistent sea level projections: progress and challenges
March 28, 2018 - 3:30pm
Ice sheet response to forced changes - such as that from anthropogenic climate forcing - is closely regulated by two-way interactions with other components of the Earth system. These interactions encompass the ice sheet response to Earth system forcing, the Earth system response to ice sheet change, and feedbacks resulting from coupled ice-sheet/Earth system evolution.

Reliable estimates of glacier mass balance allow insight into the meteorological drivers of glacier change, but financial and logistical limitations restrict field-based measurements to only a small number of the world’s glaciers. In southwestern Canada, frequent cloud cover and small glacier size also preclude the measurement of seasonal mass change from space. Here, we describe our ongoing research program employing airborne laser altimetry to estimate surface mass balance for six alpine glaciers in the Columbia Basin.

Globally, renewable power and electric vehicle technology is evolving rapidly. As these technologies are adopted, they promise to reshape the face of energy and mobility in cities. Join us for a conversation with Ethan Zindler, Head of Americas for Bloomberg New Energy Finance, as we discuss the trends and economics driving the renewable energy transition.
