Record #200630:

The Antarctic ice sheet / David G. Vaughan.

Title: The Antarctic ice sheet / David G. Vaughan.
Author(s): Vaughan, David G.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Oxford: Blackwell
In: Glacier science and environmental change. (2006.),
Abstract: Discusses imperative of ice-sheet research given possible human impact of deglaciation, and examines: measurement of change in Antarctic ice sheet; rapid response to contemporary climate change, including warming on Antarctic Peninsula and potential increase in Antarctic snowfall; long-term responses to Holocene climate change, including continuing Holocene retreat in West Antarctica and ice-stream instability; changes in Amundsen Sea sector; and difficulty in predicting future of great ice sheets.
