Snow, ice and glaciers in our changing climate
With Andrew Mackintosh (Victoria University of Wellington) and Jono Conway (Bodeker Scientific).
New Zealand is projected to warm by 1-4°C during the 21st century. This warming will melt our frozen water resources – our snow, ice and glaciers. However, the scale and timing of changes to our meltwater aren’t clear. We need improved water projections for the development of robust climate adaptation policy.
