Evolving Understanding of Antarctic Ice-Sheet Physics and Ambiguity in Probabilistic Sea-Level Projections
Kopp, R. E., DeConto, R. M., Bader, D. A., Hay, C.C., Horton, R. M., Kulp, S., Oppenheimer, M., Pollard, D., & Strauss, B.H. (2017). Evolving Understanding of Antarctic Ice-Sheet Physics and Ambiguity in Probabilistic Sea-Level Projections, Earth’s Future, 5. http://doi.org/10.1002/2017EF000663
This study links a framework for global and local sea-level rise projections with simulations of two major mechanisms by which climate change can affect the vast Antarctic ice sheet. It shows that future sea level rise may be more than previously thought, but just how much won’t become evident until after mid-century.
