High-resolution maps of Antarctica reveal higher snowfall and surface melt than previously estimated

High-resolution maps of Antarctica reveal higher snowfall and surface melt than previously estimated https://ift.tt/sSBhTXu High-resolution maps of Antarctica reveal higher snowfall and surface melt than previously estimated The Antarctic ice sheet is losing mass with high annual variability. Mass loss is driven by ice discharge, but fluctuations result from snowfall and surface melt. Our understanding of these surface processes relies on climate models running at 25-100 km spatial resolution, but is this sufficient?
