where R is rate of ice loss (e.g., in GT yr-1), s is the fingerprint scale factor, k =1,2,3 is the set of source locations (Alaska, Greenland, and Antarctica), p = 1,2,3 is the set of destination locations (north coast, central coast, south coast), and t is time. The term RGIC-AK designates the loss rate from all glacier and ice cap regions with the exception of Alaska.
