Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research - INSTANT Fellowship

Reconstructing past grounded ice extent over time around Wilkes Land margin, East Antarctica, using animal genomes

Indicative Funding
$7,391 over 2 years
Summary
The marine-based margins of the Antarctic Ice Sheet are vulnerable to collapse based on current trajectories in temperature rise. A deep uncertainty remains on whether the marine-based margin of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS) (ie, Wilkes Land) is sensitive to climate change. This project applies an innovative, genomic approach to reconstruct past configurations of the marine-based EAIS to inform its future stability.
