I made a couple of Matlab gui’s I can send you (but not python or R unfortunately): EBM zero dim, MISI, Mb-elev feedback for glacier (Oerlemans) and ice sheet (Weertman)

Lots of sea level rise, lots more to come... “Since 2009, Antarctica has lost almost 278 billion tons (252 billion metric tons) of ice per year, the new study found. In the 1980s, it was losing 44 billion tons (40 billion metric tons) a year.”

An absolutely fundamental loss for our field. John Nye helped us understand flow, crevassing, subglacial hydrology, and more--to say nothing of his many contributions to optics. We were lucky to have him for as long as we did. Rest well, JFN.

As reported by , glaciologist Robert DeConto of says that ice melt due to might not be as bad as initially thought, but may still contribute about 1 foot of rise by the year 2100.

I wrote about a debate in climate science. But it's the type of debate where even the optimistic scientists say: "We are facing sea-level rise that is obviously going to be higher in the mean than what the IPCC’s [2014] report showed."

A nice article on the ongoing back and forth in our community re: marine ice cliffs, including new work presented by R. DeConto in our session on SLR uncertainty. Thanks to for reporting this interesting story!

Snowfall accumulation in parts of Antarctica increased in the 20th century. The added precipitation has led to some mitigation of sea level rise. Overall, Antarctica still lost far more ice than it gained.
