Abstract

The simulated CO2-induced snow mass increase in the interiors of Antarctica and Greenland suggests that the monitoring of the snow accumulation rates in these locations might be of use in the identification of the projected climatic change, and in the attribution of this change to the increasing concentration of CO2 and other trace gases. Furthermore, it is likely that the simulated CO2-induced changes in the Antarctic and Greenland snowpacks can change the equilibria of the corresponding ice sheets and surrounding ice shelves which could potentially affect sea level. This possibility should be investigated through the use of suitable glaciological models for Greenland and Antarctica.-from Author
