Abstract

Enhanced oceanic heat flux and changing ocean dynamics are believed to be the key factors in making the Totten Glacier one of the fastest thinning glaciers in East Antarctica. To investigate this, a model of the ocean circulation beneath and around the Totten Glacier is currently being developed by scientists at the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre (ACE CRC) and the Australian Antarctic Division.
