Record #185812:

Antarctic glacier thinning, 1992-2003 / Andrew Shepherd, Duncan J. Wingham.

Title: Antarctic glacier thinning, 1992-2003 / Andrew Shepherd, Duncan J. Wingham.
Author(s): Shepherd, Andrew.
Wingham, Duncan J.
Date: 2008.
In: Scottish Geographical Journal. (2008.), Vol. 124(2-3) (2008)
Abstract: Analyses elevation changes of entire Antarctic Ice Sheet to determine decadal trends in mass of principal outlet glaciers, and compares pattern of imbalance to characteristics of ice sheet geometry in order to isolate factors common to all currently retreating sectors. Results indicate that only glaciers in both East and West Antarctica seated in submarine basins with no substantial ice shelf barrier are losing mass today. Their susceptibility to changes in climate may mean that they provide substantial contribution to global sea levels over 21st century should ocean warming continue as projected.
