Ice Sheet Simulations at NERSC Shed Light on Sea Level Rise Projections

October 19th, 2018

The BISICLES (Berkeley Ice Sheet Initiative for CLimate ExtremeS) program is an important tool for research into how the loss of Antarctic ice shelves could contribute to sea level rise. The simulations shown here, created at NERSC by Lab scientist Dan Martin, demonstrate the millennial-scale vulnerability of the ice sheet due solely to the loss of its ice shelves. More>
