Tipping Points in Antarctic Climate Components

Project description

Reversing sea level rise

The global climate has been warming and most of this extra heat is stored in the ocean, resulting in sea level rise. While thermal expansion is in principle reversible, sea levels are likely to continue to rise. The EU-funded TiPACCs project will investigate the likelihood of reversibility. It will check the probability of sudden and large changes in the sea level contribution from the Antarctic ice sheet that would result from passing tipping points in the marginal seas and at the grounding lines of the floating ice shelves that fringe the ice sheet. A comprehensive study of the triggering processes will reveal the likelihood of reversibility, while the study of ice–ocean feedbacks will provide insight into the threat of sudden sea level rise.
