A New Reconstruction of the Last West Antarctic Ice Sheet Deglaciation in the Ross Sea
Entry ID: NSF-ANT10-43485

Abstract: This award supports a project to develop a better understanding of the response of the WAIS to climate change. The timing of the last deglaciation of the western Ross Sea will be improved using in situ terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides (3He, 10Be, 14C, 26Al, 36Cl) to date glacial erratics at key areas and elevations along the western Ross Sea coast. A state-of-the art ice sheet-shelf model will be ... View entire text
