Feldmann, J.; Levermann, A.; Mengel, M. (2019): Stabilizing the West Antarctic Ice Sheet by surface mass deposition. In: Science Advances 5 (7), eaaw4132. DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aaw4132.
"There is evidence that a self-sustaining ice discharge from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) has started, potentially leading to its disintegration. The associated sea level rise of more than 3m would pose a serious challenge to highly populated areas including metropolises such as Calcutta, Shanghai, New York City, and Tokyo. Here, we show that the WAIS may be stabilized through mass deposition in coastal regions around Pine Island and Thwaites glaciers."
