Record #112525:

Sea-level response to ice sheet evolution: an ocean perspective / Stanley S. Jacobs.

Title: Sea-level response to ice sheet evolution: an ocean perspective / Stanley S. Jacobs.
Author(s): Jacobs, Stanley S.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: Washington, DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
In: West Antarctic Ice Sheet Initiative. Volume 2 : discipline reviews. Proceedings of a workshop ... held at Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, October 16-18, 1990. (1991.),
Abstract: Considers ocean's influence upon and response to changes in Antarctic ice sheet in relation to sea-level rise over recent and future decades. Assuming present-day ice fronts are in approximate equilibrium, preliminary budget for ice sheet is estimated from accumulation vs iceberg calving and basal melting beneath floating ice shelves. Apparent negative mass budget may result from anomalous calving rate during past decade, but there are uncertainties associated with all components of ice budget. Results from general circulation models are noted in context of projected precipitation increases and ocean temperature changes on and near continent.
