Regional Surface Mass Balance of Antarctica (1981-2016) estimated from five high resolution Regional Climate Models

Ruth Mottram

We compare the mean annual surface mass balance (SMB) of five different regional climate models (RCMs) (COSMO-CLM2, HIRHAM5, MAR3.10, MetUM and RACMO2.3p2) forced by ERA-Interim reanalysis over Antarctica for the period 1981-2016. This dataset is broken down over the grounded Antarctic ice sheet into three different regions (East Antarctica, West Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula). We also give the ensemble mean and the forcing climate reanalysis SMB.
