New research shows restoring ice melt rates in The Amundsen Sea Embayment to present-day levels within the next century could limit ice discharge and limit sea level contribution, however a long-term increase in ice accumulation is necessary to reverse ice loss in the region

Global mean sea level has been rising rapidly in recent years and will continue to do so for centuries. The Amundsen Sea Embayment in West Antarctica is a crucial region for ice loss and therefore sea level contributions. The Pine…
