Glaciers, ice shelves and ice sheets

The Antarctic glaciers and ice shelf research program aims to increase the understanding of:

  • cold based glaciers as geomorphic agents,
  • how ice shelves entrain, transport and deposit sediments into moraines,
  • marine ice formation at the base of ice shelves,
  • ice physics: understanding the mechanisms and mechanics of ice flow,
  • and the impacts of climate change to glacier response.
