Enhanced basal melt rates have been observed at many ice shelves around Antarctica in the last decade, which has mostly been attributed to an increased transport of Circumpolar Deep Water (CDW) onto the continental shelf. One of the largest ice shelves, namely the Filchner Ronne Ice Shelf (FRIS), is located in the southern Weddell Sea and plays a key role in the production of Weddell Sea Deep Water (WSDW) due to ocean-ice shelf interaction. While today the large continental shelf in front of… CONTINUE READING
