An ASTER Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for the Darwin-Hatherton Glacial System
Entry ID: K053_2006_2007_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: In order to understand how the West Antarctic Ice Sheet may respond to global climate change in the future, its current nature and how it has responded to climate change in the past has been investigated. More specifically, a modelling study was undertaken to assess the response of the Darwin-Hatherton Glacier to the retreat of the Ross Ice Sheet grounding line (Anderson et al., 2004). Some of the ...
