Solutions

3.1 The pressure is given by the hydrostatic pressure (, ) = ice (() ), which is 0.3 zero at the surface.

The outward force on a vertical slice at a distance from the middle and of a given width is obtained by integrating up the pressure times the area: () 1 () = ice ( () ) d = ice ()2 2 0 d d 3.2a which implies that = () ( + ) = d = ice () d . 0.9 This finally shows that d b = = ice () d Notice the sign, which must be like this, since was defined as positive and () is a decreasing function of . To find the height profile, we solve the differential equation for (): b d 1 d = () = ()2 ice d 2 d with the boundary condition that () = 0. This gives the solution: 2 () = 1 / ice

Alternatively, dimensional analysis could be used in the following manner. First notice that = [m ] = ice b . Using that ice = 3, [] = 2, [ ] =

Since we were informed that m , it follows that = 1/2. With the boundary condition () = 0, the solution then take the form The proportionality constant of 2 cannot be determined in this approach. () ice b

For the rectangular Greenland model, the area is equal to = 102 and the volume is found by integrating up the height profile found in problem 3.2b: 3.2c G,ice = (5)2 0 () d = 10 0 b = 10m 3 (1

where the last line follows from the fact that m . Note that the integral need not be carried out to find the scaling with . This implies that G,ice 5/4 and the wanted exponent is = 5/4. According to the assumption of constant accumulation c the total mass accumulation rate from an area of width between the ice divide at = 0 and some point at > 0 must equal the total mass flux through the corresponding vertical cross section at . 3.3 0.6 That is: = m (), from which the velocity is isolated: () = m From the given relation of incompressibility it follows that d d = = d d m 3.4 Solving this differential equation with the initial condition (0) = 0, shows that: () = m

Solving the two differential equations d d = and = d m d m with the initial conditions that (0) = m , and (0) = gives () = m e/m and () = e/m 3.5 This shows that = m /, meaning that flow lines are hyperbolas in the -plane. 0.9 Rather than solving the differential equations, one can also use them to show that d d d () = + = =0 d d m m d which again implies that = const. Fixing the constant by the initial conditions, again leads to the result that = m / . 3.6 At the ice divide, = 0, the flow will be completely vertical, and the -dependence of 1.0 m m found in 3.5 can be inverted to find (). One finds that () = ln .

The present interglacial period extends to a depth of 1492 m, corresponding to 11,700 year. Using the formula for ()from problem 3.6, one finds the following accumulation rate for the interglacial: m m ig = ln = 0.1749 m/year. 11,700 years m 1492 m

The beginning of the ice age 120,000 years ago is identified as the drop in 18O in figure 3.2b at a depth of 3040 m. Using the vertical flow velocity found in problem 3.4, d on has = d, which can be integrated down to a depth of 3040 m, using a stepwise constant accumulation rate: m ln

Reading off from figure 3.2b: 18O changes from 43,5 to 34,5 . Reading off From the area G one finds that = G /10 = 4.14 105 m. Inserting numbers in the volume formula found in 3.2c, one finds that:

This ice volume must be converted to liquid water volume, by equating the total masses, i.e. G,wa = G,ice ice = 3.17 1015 m3 , which is finally converted to a sea level rise, as G,rise =

Figure 3.S1 Geometry of the ice ball (white circle) with a test mass (small gray circle).

The total gravitational potential felt by a test mass at a certain height above the surface 3. of the Earth, and at a polar angle (cf. figure 3.S1), with respect to a rotated polar axis 1. 9 going straight through the ice sphere is found by adding that from the Earth with that from 6 the ice: E ice 1 / tot = = + 1 + / / E +

2 where = / . Since /E 1 one may use the approximation given in the 1 problem, (1 + x) 1 , || 1, to approximate this by / tot 1 + . /

again that /E 1, trigonometry shows that 2E |sin(/2)|, and one has: ice /E 1.69 m . |sin(/2)| 2|sin(/2)|

To find the magnitude of the effect in Copenhagen, the distance of 3500 km along the surface is used to find the angle CPH = (3.5 106 m)/ 0.549, corresponding to CPH 0 6.25 m. Directly opposite to Greenland corresponds to = , which gives OPP 0 1.69 m. The difference is then CPH OPP 4.56 m, where 0 has dropped out.

Figure 3.S2 Same figure as above, but with the relevant forces depicted and showed again outside figure for clarity. The blue dotted line indicates the Earth surface. The blue dashed line indicates the local sea level, growing towards Greenland and decreasing towards the south pole.

Approach with forces: This problem can also be solved using forces. The basic equations for mechanical equilibrium of the test particle is then a simple matter of balancing the two gravitational and , with the reaction force from the Earth, . Given the angles indicated in forces, Figure 3.S2, the force balance along locally vertical and horizontal directions, respectively, read + cos( ) = cos() and sin( ) = sin() which can be divided to obtain (using that = /2 /2): tan() = sin( ) + cos( ) 1 = cos(/2) 1 + ( / )sin(/2) cos(/2) / = cos(/2) (/ )2 / = cos(/2) 4 sin2 (/2)

where we have plugged in the gravitational forces and the relevant distances. We have also

approximated the fraction, using that / = 5.31 107 1, which is only valid not too close to Greenland, i.e. for a certain size of . Since the local sea surface will be perpendicular to the reaction force, it is seen from figure 3.S2 that tan() = d d d 1 d = = d d d d

The difference in sea levels in Copenhagen and opposite to Greenland can now be obtained by integrating this expression. That is CPH OPP = cos(/2) d 4 sin2 (/2) sin(/2) 2 = q d 2 1 1 = 1 2 sin( /2)

where we have made the substitution = sin(/2). Plugging in the numbers found above, we obtain again CPH OPP 4.56. Note that this solution strategy necessarily involves consideration of tangential force components alongside with the radial components. Total 9.0
