Record #187349:

Driller thriller / Douglas Fox.

Title: Driller thriller / Douglas Fox.
Author(s): Fox, Douglas.
Date: 2009.
In: New Scientist. (2009.), Vol. 202(2703) (2009)
Abstract: Overview of Antarctic Geological Drilling Project (ANDRILL) in McMurdo Sound, where results indicate that West Antarctic ice sheet has collapsed and regrown at least 60 times, and may tip toward collapse again by 2100. Recent models include previously omitted forces such as underside melting by ocean currents, and rapid acceleration and thinning of glaciers when ice shelves collapse.
