Model Development and Study of the Importance of Ice-Shelf Drag on Inland Ice: Pine Island Glacier thinning
Entry ID: alley_NSF0126187


Summary
Abstract: A 2 year modeling effort to study the dynamics of Pine Island Glacier (PIG).
The discharge from the PIG constitutes the largest mass loss from any single
West Antarctic ice stream. Satellite observations indicate that this outlet
glacier is experiencing ongoing thinning and acceleration. The emphasis of this
work will be on understanding the cause and the near-term ... View entire text
