Title: Ronne and Ross Ice Shelf
Post by: dice on January 25, 2021, 03:25:04 AM
Hello

I am interested in the Ronne Ice Shelf and Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica.  Specifically, I want to know about their size and how it's changed over the years.

Here are the two ice shelves that I am referring to in the first map:

The Ross Ice Shelf is about 500,000 square kilometers in size.  Whereas the Ronne ice Shelf is about 430,000 square kilometers in size.

Have there been any estimates on how this has changed in decades (preferably century estimates)?  Does anyone know if there are research papers or any work done on this?

There is a dedicated Ross Ice Shelf thread, and a thread for "hazard analysis of the FRIS/RIS.."  Might find a few bits of interest in those.
