Contribution of Mountain Glacier Melting to Sea-Level Changes: Recent Past and Future

Estermann, Gisela


Observations of sea-level changes in the 20th century show a rise of 1 to 2 mm year−1, with accelerating rates in recent decades (IPCC, 2001, 2007b). Contributions to these changes include thermal expansion, recent melting of ice masses (Antarctica, Greenland, and mountain glaciers), and changes in terrestrial water storage. To quantify the contribution from recent mountain deglaciation, a global numerical model based on climate parameters is developed, incorporating seasonal variations in ice...[Show more]
