Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

...the same time Siple Dome was thinning. Part of the puzzle has been whether the ice streams were flowing, whether they carried interior ice to the ice shelf at the end of the last ice age, and whether they began where they do now or receded along with the ice shelf's grounding line. Studying the ice core la...
