What is happening to Antarctic sea ice, and why does it matter? Understanding the causes of catastrophic ice-shelf disintegrations on the Antarctic Peninsula since 1995 is crucial to improving coupled models of the Antarctic Ice Sheet, and predicting its future state and contribution to sea-level rise. This is a presentation by Dr Rob Massom (Australian Antarctic Division and ACE-CRC) on the causes of ice shelf disintegration.
