The Antarctic Peninsula's Response to Holocene Climate Variability: Controls on Glacial Stability and Implications for Future Change
The Antarctic Peninsula is one of the most rapidly changing regions in the Cryosphere, with 87% of its glaciers receding and several ice shelves catastrophically collapsing since observations began in the 1960’s. These ...
Paleo-Ice Stream Behavior: Retreat Scenarios and Changing Controls in the Ross Sea, Antarctica
Studying the history of ice-sheet behavior in Antarctica’s largest drainage basin, the Ross Sea, can improve understanding of patterns, timing, and controls on marine-based ice-sheet dynamics, and provide constraints on ...
Glacial Retreat Patterns and Processes on Antarctic Continental Margins
Antarctic ice margins are complex and dynamic, and Antarctic ice sheets hold a volume of ice equivalent to ~53 meters of sea level rise. The necessity of understanding ice margins and their stability motivates advances in ...
Late Quaternary variability in coastal changes along the Texas Gulf coast
The majority of the coastal barriers in Texas are retreating landwards, only a few are stable or progradational. The barriers are responding to both external (allogenic) forcings such as relative sea-level and sediment ...
