D - Amundsen Sea

This page consists of supplemental data to the main post: Antarctica 2.0 - 6.

The first section below is composed of links to glaciers within the WOD Zones in this area (those zones are within the blue lines at the bottom of this WOD Zone map).

The second section is composed of graphs of sea water temperature mean averages at three main depths (0-700 m, >700 m to 2000 m, and >2000 m).

The final section is is composed of two graphs which are the combined mean average CT & melt CT (temperatures) of all zones in this Southern Ocean area.

(Click on the links to glaciers for a Wikipedia description of when they were discovered, how they were named, size, location, etc.).

("The Antarctic Ice Sheet is losing mass at an increasing rate ... with the largest loss observed in glaciers that flow into the Amundsen Sea")

("... the Amundsen Sea Embayment of West Antarctica [is] an area experiencing rapid retreat and mass loss to the sea.")
