Antarctic ice shelf disintegration triggered by sea ice loss and ocean swell
Entry ID: AAS_4116_IceShelfStudy


Summary
Abstract: The data are from our Nature Article from June 2018: "Antarctic ice shelf disintegration triggered by sea ice loss and ocean swell".

The abstract is:
"Understanding the causes of recent catastrophic ice shelf disintegrations is a crucial step towards improving coupled models of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and predicting its future state and contribution to sea-level rise. An overlooked ... View entire text

Purpose: The purpose of the dataset is to investigate the role of ocean swells in triggering ice shelf disintegration events on the Antarctic Peninsula since 1995 in the absence of a protective sea ice "buffer".
