    • Ocean variability contributing to basal melt rate near the ice front of Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica 

      Arzeno, Isabella B.; Beardsley, Robert C.; Limeburner, Richard; Owens, W. Brechner; Padman, Laurie; Springer, Scott R.; Stewart, Craig L.; Williams, Michael J. M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-07-09)
      Basal melting of ice shelves is an important, but poorly understood, cause of Antarctic ice sheet mass loss and freshwater production. We use data from two moorings deployed through Ross Ice Shelf, ∼6 and ∼16 km south of ...
    • Seals map bathymetry of the Antarctic continental shelf 

      Padman, Laurie; Costa, Daniel P.; Bolmer, S. Thompson; Goebel, Michael E.; Huckstadt, Luis A.; Jenkins, Adrian; McDonald, Birgitte I.; Shoosmith, Deborah R. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-11-03)
      We demonstrate the first use of marine mammal dive-depth data to improve maps of bathymetry in poorly sampled regions of the continental shelf. A group of 57 instrumented elephant seals made on the order of 2 × 105 dives ...
    • Toward quantifying the increasing role oceanic heat in sea ice loss in the new Arctic 

      Carmack, Eddy C.; Polyakov, Igor V.; Padman, Laurie; Fer, Ilker; Hunke, Elizabeth C.; Hutchings, Jennifer K.; Jackson, Jennifer; Kelley, Daniel E.; Kwok, Ron; Layton, Chantelle; Melling, Humfrey; Perovich, Donald K.; Persson, Ola; Ruddick, Barry R.; Timmermans, Mary-Louise; Toole, John M.; Ross, Tetjana; Vavrus, Steve; Winsor, Peter (American Meteorological Society, 2015-12)
      The loss of Arctic sea ice has emerged as a leading signal of global warming. This, together with acknowledged impacts on other components of the Earth system, has led to the term “the new Arctic.” Global coupled climate ...
