Summary
Abstract: ICE DYNAMICS AND SURFACE GLACIOLOGY ALONG US ITASE TRAVERSE ROUTES IN EAST
ANTARCTICA

Antarctica is a key component of the Earth system. The ice sheet and its
fringing ice shelves and sea ice play pivotal roles in the planet's radiation
dynamics, in the formation of cold deep bottom water that drives ocean
circulation, and in the modulation of global sea ... View entire text
