Description

The East Antarctic ice sheet and shelves, once thought to be stable, are showing signs of thinning (melting).
Using data from IMOS funded moorings off the Totten and Mertz glaciers, Dr Steve Rintoul presents evidence that warm water beneath the ice shelf is causing this ice loss.
Obtaining good time-series data on ocean variables near these East Antarctic glaciers will improve our understanding of processes and time frames of glacial melting.
