WelcomeWelcome to the Princeton Polar Ice website! Here we present our latest research results on the mass change of Earth's ice sheets by using gravity measured by the GRACE satellites. Most recently we have published our work on the Antarctica ice sheet, measuring its ice changes since 2003.
News3/16/2015 Two articles came out recently! Read/download them from the About/Pubs page.
The first is our recent results detailing the mass loss from Antarctica:
Harig, Christopher and Frederik J. Simons. Accelerated West Antarctic ice mass loss continues to outpace East Antarctica gains. Earth Planet. Sci. Let., 415, 134-141, 2015. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.epsl.2015.01.029
The second is an article in Eos describing the release of the SLEPIAN software package: Harig, Christopher, Kevin W. Lewis, Alain Plattner, and Frederik J. Simons. A suite of software analyzes data on the sphere. Eos, 96, 2015. http://dx.doi.org/10.1029/2015EO025851
2/19/2013 The Greenland page has been updated with a new version for GRACE Release Level 05 data, with data through September 2012. The previous page can still be accessed from there as well. The next update for new Greenland data will likely be after Jan2013 is released.
