The article presents supplementary materials for the study "Estimating Greenland ice sheet surface mass balance contribution to future sea level rise using the regional atmospheric climate model MAR," by Fettweis and colleagues published in the 2013 issue. It presents an image showing the differences in surface elevation using different mapping programs. A table is also presented that shows the coefficient of correlation and compares the time series analysis for each mapping programs.

    Mass changes and mass contribution to sea level rise from glaciers and ice caps (GIC) are key components of the earth's changing sea level. GIC surface mass balance (SMB) magnitudes and individual and regional mean conditions and trends (1979-2009) were simulated for all GIC having areas greater...

    Computer models of ice sheet behavior are important tools for projecting future sea level rise. The simulated modern ice sheets generated by these models differ markedly as input parameters are varied. To ensure accurate ice sheet mass loss projections, these parameters must be constrained using...
