New Data Set: Global PyGEM-OGGM Glacier Projections with RCP and SSP Scenarios, Version 1
The Global PyGEM-OGGM Glacier Projections with RCP and SSP Scenarios, Version 1 data set is now available at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). This data set comprises results from a hybrid glacier evolution model that uses the mass balance module of the Python Glacier Evolution Model (PyGEM) and the glacier dynamics module of the Open Global Glacier Model (OGGM). Output parameters include projections of glacier mass change, fixed runoff, and various mass balance components at regionally aggregated global and glacier scales. It covers all glaciered regions globally, per the Randolph Glacier Inventory which follows GNT-G regions. Projections span 2000 to 2100 at monthly or annual temporal resolutions, depending on the parameter.
These data accompany the paper “Global glacier change in the 21st century: Every increase in temperature matters” published in Science today: https://doi.org/10.1126/science.abo1324
