Modeling ice sheet change in Antarctica
This figure appears in chapter 3 of the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Years 2018-2019 report.
Left: In the study area in Queen Maud Land, eastern Antarctica, the blue area experienced increased snowfall related to warming temperatures . Right: Until recently, annual snowfall, as recorded in the historical ice core record (blue), remained within preindustrial averages (dashed grey lines). Data modeled by the Community Earth System Model includes an artificially-controlled run (green) and an ensemble data run (red), showing the potential projected snowfall increases based on the NSF data recorded at Queen Maud Land. The grey area around the ensemble data is the margin for error.
