Slowdown in Antarctic Mass Loss from Solid Earth and Sea-Level FeedbacksResults of a new study on negative feedbacks from Solid Earth and Sea-Level processes on grounding line retreat in Antarctica, along with corresponding impacts on the contribution of Thwaites Glacier to future sea-level rise.
Polar Motion SimulationOur newest simulation models work published by Surendra Adhikari et al. in Earth and Planetary Sciences Letters, "What drives 20th century polar motion".
Glacial Isostatic Adjustment SimulationOur Glacial Isostatic Adjustment simulation demonstrates results from work published in Geophysical Research Letters, "GIA Model Statistics for GRACE Hydrology, Cryosphere and Ocean Science".
This model quantifies the impact of Antarctica and Greenland melt on the coastlines of several states in the US assuming the so-called bath-tub model (sea level is evenly distributed over the entire oceans as though Earth is a nongravitating, nonrotating, rigid planet).
Melting ice in Antarctica and Greenland can change the mass and volume of ocean water, affecting sea levels on U.S. coastlines.
Gradient fingerprint mapping of local sea level with respect to ice thickness changes over all glaciated areas of the world.
Melting ice can change the gravitational profile of Earth's surface, with counter-intuitive effects: lower sea levels close to the melting mass, and higher levels farther away.
Results of a new study on negative feedbacks from Solid Earth and Sea-Level processes on grounding line retreat in Antarctica, along with corresponding impacts on the contribution of Thwaites Glacier to future sea-level rise.
Explore how Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica will thin in the future and contribute to sea-level rise around the world. Understand how elastic rebound of the bedrock underneath this glacier is slowing it down.
Present-day GIA trends (gravity, uplift and geoid). Statistics (expectation and standard deviation) were derived from a Bayesian ensemble of 100,000 models constrained by a global data set of relative sea level and GPS data.
Earth's crust is rebounding slowly, over thousands of years, from the heavy burden of the last ice age. This simulation allows mapping of these trends across Earth's surface with the help of planet-wide GPS and sea level data, along with an ensemble of 100,000 computer models.
