ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which focuses on the use of regional climate model Modèle Atmosphérique Régional (MAR) for modeling the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) surface mass balance (SMB). It says that an energy balance-base snow model which allows feedbacks between the surface and the atmosphere is allowed in the MAR approach. It adds that heavy precipitation on the GrIS is produced by MAR for low-resolution simulations.
