Wolovick, Michael J.; Moore, John C. (2018): Stopping the Flood. Could We Use Targeted Geoengineering to Mitigate Sea Level Rise? In: The Cryosphere Discuss., S. 1–20. DOI: 10.5194/tc-2018-95.

"Here, we use a suite of coupled ice–ocean flowband simulations to explore whether targeted geoengineering using an artificial sill or artificial ice rises could counter a collapse. Successful interventions occur when the floating ice shelf regrounds on the pinning points, increasing buttressing and reducing ice flux across the grounding line. Regrounding is more likely with a continuous sill that is able to block warm water transport to the grounding line."
