[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Antarctic Peninsula (AP) is one of the few regions in Antarctica that experiences significant surface melt and runoff. Being a region of fast atmospheric warming (three to four times the global average during the last five decades), the increase in meltwater production has presumably led to the disintegration of numerous ice shelves in the northern AP. As a result, grounded glaciers have ... View entire text
