The Glacier Model Intercomparison Project (GlacierMIP3) is beginning its third phase. GlacierMIP is a framework for a coordinated intercomparison of global-scale glacier mass change models to foster model improvements and reduce uncertainties in global glacier projections.

Submission deadline 1 December 2021.

GlacierMIP3 aims to address three fundamental questions:

  • What would be the equilibrium volume and area of all glaciers outside the ice sheets if global mean temperatures were to stabilize at present-day levels?
  • What would be the equilibrium volume and area of all glaciers outside the ice sheets if global mean temperatures were to stabilize at different temperature levels (e.g. +1.5?C, +2?C, relative to pre-industrial)?
  • For each of these global mean temperature stabilization scenarios, how much time would the glaciers need to reach their new equilibrium?

Do you have a model that allows simulating the evolution of glaciers at regional to global scales? If so, the GlacierMIP3 team strongly encourage you to join this community effort that will allow them to answer these new scientific questions.

All information about GlacierMIP3 and is available on: https://github.com/GlacierMIP/GlacierMIP3, including the protocol for the experiments: https://github.com/GlacierMIP/GlacierMIP3/blob/main/GlacierMIP3_protocol.md, and other practicalities (e.g., the deadline for submission of results, which is set on December 01 2021).

The GlacierMIP3 team looks forward to receiving your submissions!
