Projecting Antarctica's contribution to future sea level rise: From decades to millennia

Registration link:

Anders Levermann

Potsdam Institute, Columbia University, Germany

Here we present direct numerical simulation for the hysteresis of the Antarctic ice sheet and use linear response theory to use these kind of simulations to project Antarctica's sea level contribution to the end of the century.
