Friday, January 22, 2016 at 9:53 amWhy would anyone care about the temperatures at the base of an ice sheet during the last ice age? Presently, there are two ice sheets on Earth, the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheet. Due to increasing global temperatures, scientists are plagued with questions concerning their fate. Over the past two decades, observations have revealed a significant mass loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet, while studies warn of the potential collapse of an important component holding together the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The collapse, alone, of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet would lead to a rise in sea level by 3 m. However, to fully understand the effects of future climate change on ice sheets, it is necessary to understand their growth, decay and collapse. This is why we look to the past.
