Record #126655:

West Antarctic ice sheet collapse: chimera or clear danger? / Richard B. Alley, Douglas R. MacAyeal.

Title: West Antarctic ice sheet collapse: chimera or clear danger? / Richard B. Alley, Douglas R. MacAyeal.
Author(s): Alley, Richard B.
MacAyeal, Douglas R.
Date: 1993[pub.1994]
In: Antarctic Journal of the United States. (1993[pub.1994]), Vol. 28(5) (1993[pub.1994])
Abstract: Cautions acceptance of official view that collapse of west Antarctic ice sheet within next century or so, and consequent rise in sea level, is unlikely. Ice sheet may be less stable than believed and warming at end of last deglaciation is possible trigger of future collapse.
Notes:

Antarctic Journal of the United States. Vol. 28(5) :59-60 (1993[pub.1994]).
