Cold takes!

(I assume that’s what you call a “hot take” if it’s about glaciology)

As I sit here in Christchurch waiting for my flight to Antarctica, I finally had a second to sit down and read some of the of press Jay Zwally’s new paper about Antarctic mass balance has received. There is a lot to unpack about this paper and we’ll save that for another day (maybe). In the meantime, some friends and colleagues have linked to a few articles that I think do a pretty solid job at discussing the issues surrounding measurements of Antarctic mass balance. Thanks Neil, Twila, and Helen!

From our fearless leader of the Scripps Glaciology Group, Helen, send this link along: http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2015/11/2/experts-dispute-nasa-antarctic-ice-gain-study.html

Unrelated, tomorrow we try again to catch a plane to Antarctica. Oh, and there’s something else pretty cool happening tomorrow, but I’ll save that for tomorrow!
