Abstract

The response of the Antarctic Ice Sheet to ice shelf collapse is explored with a high resolution ice sheet model. Rapid melting is applied to each of its major present day drainage basins in turn , to determine which parts of the ice sheet are most vulnerable to change in oceanic forcing, over the n...
