Moisture generation and transport at ice stream margins

Abstract:

Alterations to glacial mass balance brought about by dynamic changes in ice ow play a key role in the global climate system via sea-level rise, diminishing albedo and alterations to atmospheric circulation. A detailed understanding of these dynamics is therefore a prerequisite to making accurate predictions of future global ice extent and quantifying its feedbacks on the changing climate. Temperate zones are predicted to exist deep within the Antarctic ice sheet due to intense shear...
