Science publishes Paolo and Fricker's 18-year study of changing Antarctic ice sheet shelves

The findings of a recent study on Antarctic ice sheet thinning by IGPP geophysicists, Fernando Paolo and Helen Fricker, have been published in the March 26, 2015 issue of Science. Ph.D. student Paolo, glaciologist Fricker, and Laurie Padman, of Earth & Space Research Space Agency, reviewed 18 years of imagery gathered during European Space Agency satellite radar altimetry missions to conduct their research.

The study is remarkable in both the period of time covered (nearly two decades) and its findings: that the thinning of the ice shelf has increased dramatically since 2004.
