Vulnerability of East Antarctic Ice Streams to warm Ocean Water Incursions
Entry ID: USAP-1245879

Abstract: Intellectual Merit:

This project will determine the potential vulnerability of key ice streams to incursions of warmer ocean water onto the continental shelf and if this mechanism could already explain any of the observed thinning of the ice sheet. It will provide important constrains on ice dynamic of the investigated section of the EAIS, and thus will be critical for future ice sheet models ... View entire text
