    • Abstract: Continuous monitoring of surface water vapour isotopic compositions at Neumayer Station III, East Antarctica

      The Cryosphere, 15, 4745–4767, https://doi.org/10.5194/tc-15-4745-2021, 2021
      In this study, for the first time, water vapour isotope measurements in Antarctica for all seasons of a year are performed. Local temperature is identified as the main driver of δ18O and δD variability. A similar slope of the temperature–δ18O relationship in vapour and surface snow points to the water vapour isotope content as a potential key driver. This dataset can be used as a new dataset to evaluate the capability of isotope-enhanced climate models.

    • Abstract: Assessment of neutrons from secondary cosmic rays at mountain altitudes – Geant4 simulations of environmental parameters including soil moisture and snow cover

      The Cryosphere, 15, 4769–4780, https://doi.org/10.5194/tc-15-4769-2021, 2021
      Neutrons from secondary cosmic rays, measured at 2660 m a.s.l. at Zugspitze, Germany, are highly affected by the environment, in particular by snow, soil moisture, and mountain shielding. To quantify these effects, computer simulations were carried out, including a sensitivity analysis on snow depth and soil moisture. This provides a possibility for snow depth estimation based on the measured number of secondary neutrons. This method was applied at Zugspitze in 2018.

      Glacier tables are structures frequently encountered on temperate glaciers. They consist of a rock supported by a narrow ice foot which forms through differential melting of the ice. In this article, we investigate their formation by following their dynamics on the Mer de glace glacier (Alps, France). We explain this phenomenon by a combination of the effect of wind and direct solar radiation that sets a critical size above which a rock will form a glacier table.

      The new datasets from the Caucasus Mountains show the accelerated glacier area loss over the last two decades (2000–2020). This new glacier inventory will improve our understanding of climate change impacts at a regional scale and support related modeling studies by providing high-quality validation data.

      Measurements of the properties of the snow and soil were compared to simulations of the Community Land Model to see how well the model represents snow insulation. Simulations underestimated snow thermal conductivity and wintertime soil temperatures. As the model does not accurately represent the properties of shallow arctic snowpacks, a correction factor was required to reduce the transfer of heat through the snowpack and bring simulated soil temperatures closer to measurements.

  • Lasting impact of winds on Arctic sea ice through the ocean's memory

    • Abstract: Lasting impact of winds on Arctic sea ice through the ocean's memory
      Qiang Wang, Sergey Danilov, Longjiang Mu, Dmitry Sidorenko, and Claudia Wekerle
      The Cryosphere, 15, 4703–4725, https://doi.org/10.5194/tc-15-4703-2021, 2021
      Using simulations, we found that changes in ocean freshwater content induced by wind perturbations can significantly affect the Arctic sea ice drift, thickness, concentration and deformation rates years after the wind perturbations. The impact is through changes in sea surface height and surface geostrophic currents and the most pronounced in warm seasons. Such a lasting impact might become stronger in a warming climate and implies the importance of ocean initialization in sea ice prediction.

      This study demonstrates for the first time the potential of Google Earth Engine (GEE) cloud-computing platform and Sentinel-1 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images for semi-automated tracking of area changes and movements of iceberg B43. Our novel GEE-based iceberg tracking can be used to construct a large iceberg database for a better understanding of the behavior of icebergs and their interactions with surrounding environments.

  • Quantifying the potential future contribution to global mean sea level

    • Abstract: Quantifying the potential future contribution to global mean sea level from the Filchner–Ronne basin, Antarctica
      Emily A. Hill, Sebastian H. R. Rosier, G. Hilmar Gudmundsson, and Matthew Collins
      The Cryosphere, 15, 4675–4702, https://doi.org/10.5194/tc-15-4675-2021, 2021
      Using an ice flow model and uncertainty quantification methods, we provide probabilistic projections of future sea level rise from the Filchner–Ronne region of Antarctica. We find that it is most likely that this region will contribute negatively to sea level rise over the next 300 years, largely as a result of increased surface mass balance. We identify parameters controlling ice shelf melt and snowfall contribute most to uncertainties in projections.

      Surging glaciers show cyclical changes in flow behavior – between slow and fast flow – and can have drastic impacts on settlements in their vicinity. One of the clusters of surging glaciers worldwide is High Mountain Asia (HMA). We present an inventory of surging glaciers in HMA, identified from satellite imagery. We show that the number of surging glaciers was underestimated and that they represent 20 % of the area covered by glaciers in HMA, before discussing new physics for glacier surges.

      Preprint under review for TC (discussion: open, 0 comments)
      We use satellite imagery and modelling to investigate the stability of the Shackleton system in East Antarctica. We find that observed changes in ice flow speed and structure appear short lived and provide an upper estimate of changes due to ocean and atmosphere warming of ~6 cm sea level rise. We conclude that knowledge remains woefully insufficient to explain recent observed change in the grounded and floating regions of the system.

      In the described study, we derive an uncertainty range for global mean SLR contribution from Thwaites Glacier in a 200 year period under an extreme ocean warming scenario. We also derive the spatial and vertical resolutions needed for bedrock data acquisition missions in order to limit global mean SLR contribution from Thwaites Glacier to ±2 cm in a 200-year period. Finally, we conduct sensitivity experiments in order to present the locations of critical regions in need of accurate mapping.

      Using a unique data, some dating back to the 18th century, we show a significant trend in shorter ice duration, later freeze, and earlier breakup dates across Sweden. In recent observations, the mean ice durations have decreased by 11 to 28 days and the chance of years with an extremely short ice cover duration (less than 50 days) have increased by 800 %. Results show that even a 1 °C increase in air temperatures can result in around 8 to 23 days of decrease in ice duration in Sweden.

      The Cryosphere, 15, 4655–4673, https://doi.org/10.5194/tc-15-4655-2021, 2021
      We estimate the timing of post-LGM grounding line retreat and readvance in the Ross Sea sector of Antarctica. Our analyses indicate that the grounding line retreated over our field sites within the past 5000 years (coinciding with a warming climate) and readvanced roughly 1000 years ago (coinciding with a cooling climate). Based on these results, we propose that the Siple Coast grounding line motions in the middle to late Holocene were driven by relatively modest changes in regional climate.

      Blue ice areas (BIAs) have several advantages for reconstructing past climate. However, the complicated ice flow in the areas hinders constraining the age. We applied state-of-the-art techniques and found that the ages cover the last deglaciation period. Our study demonstrates that BIA in Northern Victoria Land may help reconstruct the past climate during the termination of the last glacial period.

      Eastern Alpine glaciers have been receding since the Little Ice Age maximum, but until now the majority of glacier margins could be delineated unambiguously. Today the outlines of totally debris-covered glacier ice are fuzzy and raise the discussion if these features are still glaciers. We investigated the fate of glacier remnants with high-resolution elevation models, analyzing also thickness changes in buried ice. In the past 13 years, the 46 glaciers of Silvretta lost one-third of their area.

      We investigated the impacts of local-scale variations by analysing snow climate indicators derived from parallel snow measurements. We found the largest relative inter-pair differences for all indicators in spring and the smallest in winter. The findings serve as an important basis for our understanding of uncertainties of commonly used snow indicators and provide, in combination with break-detection methods, the groundwork in view of any homogenization efforts regarding snow time series.

      Snow water equivalent (SWE) is of fundamental importance to water, energy, and geochemical cycles, but is poorly observed globally. Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) measurements at X and Ku-band can address this gap. This review will serve to inform the broad snow research, monitoring, and applications communities on the progress made in recent decades to move towards a new satellite mission capable of addressing the needs of the geoscience researchers and users.

      In this study, we improve the regional climate model RACMO2 and investigate the climate of Antarctica. We have implemented a new radiative transfer and snow albedo scheme and do several sensitivity experiments. When fully tuned, the results compare well with observations and snow temperature profiles have improved. Moreover, small changes in the albedo and the investigated processes can lead to a strong overestimation of melt, locally leading to runoff and a reduced surface mass balance.

      The Cryosphere, 15, 4589–4605, https://doi.org/10.5194/tc-15-4589-2021, 2021
      Grain size is a key microphysical property of ice, controlling the rheological behavior of ice sheets and glaciers. In this study, we develop a new model for grain size evolution in ice and show that it accurately predicts grain size in laboratory experiments and in natural ice core data. The model provides a physical explanation for the power-law relationship between stress and strain rate known as the Glen law and can be used as a predictive tool for modeling ice flow in natural systems.

      The snow cover spatial variability in mountains changes considerably over the course of a snow season. In applications such as weather, climate and hydrological predictions the fractional snow-covered area is therefore an essential parameter characterizing how much of the ground surface in a grid cell is currently covered by snow. We present a seasonal algorithm and a spatiotemporal evaluation suggesting that the algorithm can be applied in other geographic regions by any snow model application.
