Icy Interactions: Exploring the Interactions between Ice Sheets and Other Earth System Components

Friday, Jul 13, 2018

Complex interactions between ice sheets and other components of the Earth system determine how ice sheets contribute to sea level rise.

Motivated by the urgent need to better understand the contributions to future sea level rise from the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, a recent article, coauthored by AOS Research Glaciologist Olga Sergienko and published in Reviews of Geophysics, explores the interactions between ice sheets and other Earth system components, and the feedback loops caused by these interactions. Here, the authors give an overview of scientific research in this area.
