Collapse and Rise The West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) is thought to be inherently unstable and susceptible to rapid collapse if it reaches a certain warming threshold. Although such an event is considered unlikely, to predict the consequences of collapse it is important to know how much sea level would rise in such a case. The WAIS is thought to contain enough ice to raise sea level by 5 to 7 meters were it to collapse. Bamber et al. (p. 901, see the cover; see the Perspective by Ivins) have… Expand
