Goals

  • Develop rigorous statistical tools that will integrate all available accumulation data into region-wide maps of accumulation means and trends
  • Identify regions where additional data are critical re new field measurement locations that will minimize prediction error
  • Drill and analyze a network of shallow firn cores in eastern West Antarctica to improve the accumulation map in that region and assess the influence of synoptical-scale climate variability on WAIS accumulation.

Maps based on preliminary results and model
