A statistical fracture model for Antarctic ice shelves and glaciers

Emetc, Veronika; Tregoning, Paul; Morlighem, Mathieu; Borstad, Chris; Sambridge, Malcolm


Antarctica and Greenland hold enough ice to raise sea level by more than 65 m if both ice sheets were to melt completely. Predicting future ice sheet mass balance depends on our ability to model these ice sheets, which is limited by our current understanding of several key physical processes, such as iceberg calving. Large-scale ice flow models either ignore this process or represent it crudely. To model fractured zones, an important component of many calving models, continuum damage mechanics...[Show more]
