Our new study shows three Greenland glaciers contributed 8mm to *global* sea-level rise since 1900. But *local* sea level has fallen at these glaciers (up to 500mm!) due to weakening local gravity. Article: News:

Another big unkown: ice shelf bathymetry. Even if we do know bathymetry, seafloor properties are uncertain. This can make a x2 difference in Grounding Line positions and advance/retreat speeds. Our new study in

When an ice sheet loses mass, the continent reacts by rising up. In West Antarctica, this rebound is much faster than previously thought and could stabilise areas of unstable ice retreat! Read this week's blog post by to know more
