The firn meltwater retention model intercomparison project (retmip) : evaluation of nine firn models at four weather station sites on the greenland ice sheet

Perennial snow, or firn, covers 80 % of the Greenland ice sheet and has the capacity to retain surface meltwater, influencing the ice sheet mass balance and contribution to sea-level rise. Multilayer firn models are traditionally used to simulate firn processes and estimate meltwater retention. We present, intercompare and evaluate outputs from nine firn models at four sites that represent...

Worldwide version-controlled database of glacier thickness observations

Welty, Ethan ; Zemp, Michael ; Navarro, Francisco ; Huss, Matthias ; Fürst, Johannes J. ; Gärtner-Roer, Isabelle ; Landmann, Johannes ; Machguth, Horst ; Naegeli, Kathrin ; Andreassen, Liss M. ; Farinotti, Daniel ; Li, Huilin ; GlaThiDa Contributors

In: Earth System Science Data, 2020, vol. 12, no. 4, p. 3039–3055

Although worldwide inventories of glacier area have been coordinated internationally for several decades, a similar effort for glacier ice thicknesses was only initiated in 2013. Here, we present the third version of the Glacier Thickness Database (GlaThiDa v3), which includes 3 854 279 thickness measurements distributed over roughly 3000 glaciers worldwide. Overall, 14 % of global...

Decrypting silicic magma/plug fragmentation at Azufral crater lake, Northern Andes : insights from fine to extremely fine ash morpho-chemistry

Pardo, Natalia ; Avellaneda, Jose D. ; Rausch, Juanita ; Jaramillo-Vogel, David ; Gutiérrez, Mariana ; Foubert, Anneleen

In: Bulletin of Volcanology, 2020, vol. 82, no. 12, p. 79

Azufral (SW Colombia) is a dangerous silicic volcano hosting a crater lake, which serves as an excellent example of an incipient plug disruption through phreatomagmatism. We studied the youngest succession of dilute pyroclastic density currents (PDCs) onlapping the north-eastern crater rim. Scanning electron microscopy coupled with energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy was used to carry out an...

A general theory of rock glacier creep based on in-situ and remote sensing observations

Cicoira, Alessandro ; Marcer, Marco ; Gärtner‐Roer, Isabelle ; Bodin, Xavier ; Arenson, Lukas U. ; Vieli, Andreas

In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes, 2020, vol. 32, no. 1, p. 139-153

The ongoing acceleration in rock glacier velocities concurrent with increasing air temperatures, and the widespread onset of rock glacier destabilization have reinforced the interest in rock glacier dynamics and in its coupling to the climate system. Despite the increasing number of studies investigating this phenomenon, our knowledge of both the fundamental mechanisms controlling rock...
