Future sea level change under Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 and 6 scenarios from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets

28 August, 2021 by Thomas Bracegirdle

Projections of the sea level contribution from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets rely on atmospheric and oceanic drivers obtained from climate models. The Earth System Models participating in the…

Rapid and accurate polarimetric radar measurements of ice crystal fabric orientation at the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Divide ice core site

27 August, 2021 by Carlos Martin Garcia

The crystal orientation fabric (COF) of ice sheets records the past history of ice sheet deformation and influences present-day ice flow dynamics. Though not widely implemented, coherent ice-penetrating radar is…

EUREC4A

25 August, 2021 by Thomas Lachlan-Cope

The science guiding the EUREC4A campaign and its measurements is presented. EUREC4A comprised roughly 5 weeks of measurements in the downstream winter trades of the North Atlantic – eastward and…

Reconstructing Antarctic winter sea-ice extent during Marine Isotope Stage 5e [in review]

20 August, 2021 by Claire Allen, Claus-Dieter Hillenbrand, Louise Sime, Matthew Chadwick

Environmental conditions during Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 5e (130–116 ka) represent an important ‘process analogue’ for understanding the climatic responses to present and future anthropogenic warming. The response of Antarctic sea…

Intermediate ice scour disturbance is key to maintaining a peak in biodiversity within the shallows of the Western Antarctic Peninsula

18 August, 2021 by Ben Robinson, David Barnes, Simon Morley

Climate-related disturbance regimes are changing rapidly with profound consequences for ecosystems. Disturbance is often perceived as detrimental to biodiversity; however, the literature is divided on how they influence each other.…

Geochronology and geochemistry of the South Scotia Ridge: Miocene island arc volcanism of the Scotia Sea

18 August, 2021 by Alex Burton-Johnson, Kelly Hogan, Philip Leat, Teal Riley

The ancestral South Sandwich arc (ASSA) records evidence of Oligocene – Miocene intra-oceanic island arc volcanism in the central Scotia Sea and potentially formed an important topographic barrier to deep…
