The effect of increased fresh water from Antarctic ice shelves on future trends in Antarctic sea ice
Annals of Glaciology
Observations show that, in contrast to the Arctic, the area of Antarctic sea ice has increased since 1979. A potential driver of this significant increase relates to the mass loss of the Antarctic ice sheet. Subsurface ocean warming causes basal ice-shelf melt, freshening the surface waters around Antarctica, which leads to increases in sea-ice cover. With climate warming ongoing, future mass-loss rates are projected to accelerate, which has the potential to affect future Antarctic sea-icedoi:10.3189/2015aog69a001 fatcat:6krqp7q4ejd6zheljxepy4nlqy
