Satellite Record Gives Unprecedented View of Changing Antarctic Ice Melt Pattern over 25 Years

Scripps News (August 10th 2020)

Using 25 years of satellite data, a new paper by lead author Susheel Adusumilli provides "convincing evidence" that changes in the Southern Ocean are driving Antarctic ice loss. The authors also constructed the longest and most comprehensive record of ice sheet melting in Antarctica, describing the unique changing environment across both Antarctic ice sheets.

New research: Viscous and elastic buoyancy stresses as drivers of ice-shelf calving

Cambridge University Press (June 3rd 2020)

A new paper written by Cyrille Mosbeux, Till J.W. Wagner, Maya K. Becker, and Helen A. Fricker describes the elastic and viscous driving forces of ice-shelf calving. Developing these effects allows for better modeling and prediction of future mass loss from the ice sheets.
