Record #110233:

The response of the Antarctic ice sheet to climatic change / David J. Drewry.

Title: The response of the Antarctic ice sheet to climatic change / David J. Drewry.
Author(s): Drewry, David J.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: London: Belhaven Press in association with Scott Polar Research Institute
In: Antarctica and global climatic change. (1991.),
Abstract: Three principal effects identified: rise in ice temperature and attendant ice-flow changes, enhanced basal melting beneath ice shelves and related dynamical responses, and changes in mass balance. These processes operate on different time scales and hence contribute to sea level. Precipitation effects will dominate in next 100 years and will act to lower sea level, whereas ice-sheet dynamical changes, with capacity for much greater ice-volume reduction (and hence sea-level rise), will become effective over next 500 to 1000 years.
