Author Topic: Antarctic Ice Sheet Discharge as a progenitor of Temperature Variations  (Read 1280 times)


  • Guest
The international research-group acquired a high-temporal-resolution dataset of iceberg-rafted debris (IBRD) that correlates to the Ice Sheet flow speed from Ross Sea. Significant variability of ice discharge was observed over time. As the global datasets of climate variability during Holocene are more varied than in the climate simulations, the group proposes the varied discharge of ice by the Antarctic ice sheets as the reason for the larger variability in reality than in the models. This was tested by climate models incorporating the observed significant variability. Mechanism for variability is proposed.

More behind the paywall, I guess.
