Atmosphere-Ocean-Ice Interactions in the Amundsen Sea Embayment, West Antarctica
Editors’ Highlight—This paper draws on material from across disciplines to present a review of knowledge on the Amundsen Sea Embayment in the West Antarctic, both the current state of the ice sheet and its projected change. The area is experiencing an accelerated thinning and retreat, currently contributing about 10% of sea level rise, and the West Antarctic ice sheet has the potential for major contributions in the coming decades to centuries. Given that this is an issue of substantial concern for humanity, this review identifies gaps in knowledge about the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and suggests where research should go next.
