The Antarctic Ice Sheet, the largest freshwater reservoir on Earth, is rapidly changing in response to ongoing atmosphere and ocean warming. Antarctic field observations are scarce, highlighting the need for remote sensing and numerical modeling to assess Antarctic climate, and to understand interactions between the ice sheet and the atmosphere aloft, the snow layer atop, and the ocean surrounding it. In this seminar, I will describe some of the recent work our Ice Sheets and Climate research group is working on, including (1) the impact of atmospheric rivers on Antarctic snowfall; (2) surface meltwater processes on Antarctic ice shelves; and (3) impact of Antarctic mass loss on future Southern Ocean conditions.
