New paper alert! The influence of summertime cloud phase on surface melting over Larsen C

Wahoo! My first first-author paper is out, and it's open access. https://twitter.com/BAS_News/status/1223506872759672833 A plain-language summary: Clouds strongly affect the amount of energy that can reach the surface of floating Antarctic ice shelves like Larsen C in summertime. They can reflect incoming solar radiation and trap outgoing radiation emitted by the Earth. However, the composition and … Continue reading New paper alert!

I spoke to the BBC's Jon Amos about it, and they made this snappy little video about it. Check it out: https://twitter.com/BBCScienceNews/status/1016334382636978176 So what's happening to it now? … Continue reading A(68)nniversary

Antarctic ice shelf melt trajectories out to 2100: Trusel et al. (2015)

Trusel et al. use RACMO2 to project ice shelf melt rates across Antarctica.
