Arctic Sea Ice and Greenland Ice Sheet Sensitivity
ID: 610055
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2019-07-31
The cryosphere is in fast transition. The possibility that the ongoing rapid demise of Arctic sea ice may instigate abrupt changes on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) is not tackled by current research. Ice cores from the GIS show clear evidence of past abrupt warm events,up to ...
