Summary
Abstract: Predicting the contribution of the Antarctic Ice Sheet to sea level rise is one of the biggest current challenges in glaciology. Through integrated fieldwork and modelling, TIGRIS is making a number of specific advances in understanding current and former change in the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. TIGRIS is focussing on three key aspects: on-going glacial change; variability of fast ice flow; and ... View entire text
