Summary
Abstract: Recent events in the Antarctic Peninsula (AP) demonstrate that ice and climate systems can change rapidly in a warming world. Air temperatures in the AP have risen six times faster than the global average in recent decades, which has triggered glaciological and ecological events in the last 1,000 years that are unique in the history of the region. Studies based on remote sensing and the available ... View entire text

Description: The Antarctic Glaciological Data Center (AGDC) at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) archives and distributes Antarctic glaciological and cryospheric system data collected by the U.S. Antarctic Program.

Description: The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) supports research into our world's frozen realms: the snow, ice, glacier, frozen ground, and climate interactions that make up Earth's cryosphere. Scientific data, whether taken in the field or relayed from satellites orbiting Earth, form the foundation for the scientific research that informs the world about our planet and our climate systems.
