Contribution of Antarctica to past and future sea-level rise
TLDR
A model coupling ice sheet and climate dynamics—including previously underappreciated processes linking atmospheric warming with hydrofracturing of buttressing ice shelves and structural collapse of marine-terminating ice cliffs—is calibrated against Pliocene and Last Interglacial sea-level estimates and applied to future greenhouse gas emission scenarios.
Rapid Cenozoic glaciation of Antarctica induced by declining atmospheric CO2
TLDR
In this simulation, declining Cenozoic CO2 first leads to the formation of small, highly dynamic ice caps on high Antarctic plateaux, and at a later time, a CO2 threshold is crossed, initiating ice-sheet height/mass-balance feedbacks that cause the ice caps to expand rapidly with large orbital variations, eventually coalescing into a continental-scale East Antarctic Ice Sheet.
An integrated biosphere model of land surface processes
Here we present a new terrestrial biosphere model (the Integrated Biosphere Simulator - IBIS) which demonstrates how land surface biophysics, terrestrial carbon fluxes, and global vegetation dynamics
Modelling West Antarctic ice sheet growth and collapse through the past five million years
TLDR
A combined ice sheet/ice shelf model capable of high-resolution nesting with a new treatment of grounding-line dynamics and ice-shelf buttressing is used to simulate Antarctic ice sheet variations over the past five million years, indicating a long-term trend from more frequently collapsed to more glaciated states.
Effects of boreal forest vegetation on global climate
TERRESTRIAL ecosystems are thought to play an important role in determining regional and global climate1–6; one example of this is in Amazonia, where destruction of the tropical rainforest leads to
Progress in understanding jointing over the past century
Joints are the most common result of brittle fracture of rock in the Earth's crust. They control the physiography of many spectacular landforms and play an important role in the transport of fluids.

Northern Hemisphere Ice-Sheet Influences on Global Climate Change
Large ice sheets actively interact with the rest of the climate system by amplifying, pacing, and potentially driving global climate change over several time scales. Direct and indirect influences of
