Tipping points in Antarctica

Tipping points in Antarctica

As Antarctica’s mass loss increases, the threat of crossing tipping points both in the ice sheet and the surrounding Southern Ocean is increasing. These tipping points are central to the research agenda of TiPACCs. But what actually is a tipping point? Have tipping points already been crossed in the past? And what might the future hold? Dave Chandler and Ronja Reese, both Postdocs within TiPACCs, give answers to these questions in the newly published blog post “How small changes can make a big difference: tipping points in Antarctica” hosted by the EGU Cryospheric Divison.
