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 ...
