Preventing a Collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet: Civil Engineering on a Continental Scale (Abstract only)
Annals of Glaciology
A collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet due to warming by atmospheric carbon dioxide is a potential threat to mankind because low-lying land would be flooded by rising sea-level. Intervention would be possible by creating one or several artifical ice rises on the floating ice shelves surrounding the West Antarctic ice sheet. Ice rises are places where the ice shelf has run aground locally on the sea bed. Existing ice rises obstruct ice flow and are responsible for maintaining the ice sheetdoi:10.3189/s0260305500005747 fatcat:4g7jvkwofvc7xh7dflad44anym
