New findings suggest ice sheets, such as the Greenland Ice Sheet and Antarctica, could be at risk of collapsing and raising sea levels more than most models currently predict based on global warming alone.
In this COD-funded study published in Geophysical Research Letters, researchers present a 13 year (2002–2015) semimonthly time series of the partial pressure of CO2 in surface water (pCO2surf) and other carbonate system parameters from the Drake Passage.
New CVP-funded research published in the Journal of Climate by Green and Schmittner simulates the consequences of a rapid collapse of the Pine Island Glacier (PIG) under pre-industrial and anthropogenically-forced conditions.
