Oceanographers call for more ocean observing in Antarctica
Date:6/18/2010

rs write that the ocean surrounding Antarctica is warming and that this warming has driven the deglaciation of the peninsula. They write that the interplay between ice, atmosphere and ocean in the in the peninsula produces a positive feedback a situation in which a system responds to changes by amplifying subsequent changes. In the case of the Western Antarctic Peninsula, this means that ice, ocean and atmosphere work to increase each other's temperature and the rate at which their temperatures increase. However, the authors report that the mechanism of this interplay is not well understood, and expanded ocean-observing systems will help scientific understanding.
