Record #179330:

The Antarctic ice sheet and sea level rise / Chris Rapley.

Title: The Antarctic ice sheet and sea level rise / Chris Rapley.
Author(s): Rapley, Chris.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
In: Avoiding dangerous climate change. (2006.),
Abstract: Reassesses conclusion of 2001 Third Assessment Report of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC TAR) that net contribution of Antarctic ice sheet to global sea level change would be modest gain in mass due to greater precipitation. Recent results from satellite altimeters reveal growth of East Antarctic Ice Sheet north of 81.6° S, apparently due to increased precipitation, as predicted. However, various evidence suggests that issue of stability of West Antarctic Ice Sheet should be revisited.
