Totten Glacier ice front
Ocean heat melting Totten Glacier from below
19 December 2016

Australian research has confirmed that warm water flowing through a deep channel under East Antarctica’s largest glacier is driving rapid melting.

The research, published in Science Advances, sheds new light on the vulnerability of the East Antarctic ice sheet to ocean heat, which is one of the biggest unknown factors for global sea level rise projections.

Seals solve Antarctic water mystery
24 August 2016

Elephant seals have helped scientists to demonstrate that fresh water from Antarctica’s melting ice shelves slows the processes responsible for the formation of deep-water ocean currents that regulate global temperatures.

The study, led by Dr Guy Williams from the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies and Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC, is published today in Nature Communications.
