Collaborative Research: Paleohistory of the Larsen Ice Shelf System: Phase II - NSF-ANT03-38220
Entry ID: NSF-ANT03-38220

Abstract: The Larsen Ice Shelf is the third largest ice shelf in Antarctica and has continued a pattern of catastrophic decay since the mid 1990's. The proposed marine geologic work at the Larsen Ice Shelf builds upon our previous NSF-OPP funding and intends to test the working hypothesis that the Larsen B Ice Shelf system has been a stable component of Antarctica's glacial system since it formed during ...
