This week Leah Birch will be leading discussion on Lenaerts et al. 2013: "Irreversible mass loss of Canadian Arctic Archipelago glaciers". Leah says the following about the paper:
"The ice volume in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago is the third largest in the world, and in the past decade that area has been warm and dry, very unfavorable for glaciers. The authors model the present day climate in this area using a regional climate model and confirm it matches observations. They then use this model to predict future melt in this region, finding less melting than GCMs but negative surface mass balance in all projects. Attached is the paper and its supplementary material."
