High mid-Holocene accumulation rates over West Antarctica inferred from a pervasive ice-penetrating radar reflector [in review]

1 November, 2022 by David Vaughan

Modelling the past and future evolution of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) to atmospheric and ocean forcing is challenged by the availability and quality of observed palaeo-boundary conditions. Key…

Invasive non‐native species likely to threaten biodiversity and ecosystems in the Antarctic Peninsula region

1 April, 2020 by David Vaughan, David Barnes, Jonathan Shanklin, Kevin Hughes, Peter Convey, Simon Morley

The Antarctic is considered to be a pristine environment relative to other regions of the Earth, but it is increasingly vulnerable to invasions by marine, freshwater and terrestrial non‐native species.…

Contrasting hydrological controls on bed properties during the acceleration of Pine Island Glacier, West Antarctica

1 January, 2019 by Alex Brisbourne, Andy Smith, David Vaughan

In the Amundsen sector of West Antarctica, the flow of glaciers accelerates when intrusion of warm ocean water onto the continental shelf induces strong melting beneath ice shelves and thinning…
