Ice sheet Dynamics and Processes along the West Antarctic Continental Shelf
DESCRIPTION: The project will compile bathymetry data from the Bellinghausen, Amundsen, and Ross Seas and obtain/add new data from the Oden cruises. Also, the project will identify large-scale morphological features, analyze the geometry of cross-shelf troughs, and establish a conceptual model of ice flow and paleo ice stream distribution.
OUTCOMES: The Oden swath bathymetry and previous bathymetry have been compiled and integrated. Major geological features were identified. Five journal articles and six one-time publications.
