    Examining the "Glacial Buzz Saw"

     

    Geologists have long recogized that erosion and denudation of mountains occurs at fast rates where glaciers are present. But how do glacial erosion rates vary with latitude? A recent NSF grant provides funding for a collaborative effort between Rice University and the Univesity of Washington that will focus on glacial erosion across a vast latitudinal transect that extends from the Antarctic Peninsula to the northern Patagonian glaciers. Additional collarboration is with Chilean scientists from a number of Chilean universities and institutions. The Rice efforts will focus on acquisition of marine geological data from fjords along the transect. We will use swath bathymetry data, seismic data and sediment cores to measure sediment flux to the fjords. Meanwhile, scientists from the University of Washington will conduct land-based studies to examine styles and rates of glacial erosion. The combined data sets should provide new constraints on rates of erosion and mountain lowering in glaciated regions.

     
    Coastal Response to Sea-Level Rise and Other Forcings
     Research of the evolution of Gulf Coast bays and coastal barriers focuses on the response of these systems to past changes in the rate of sea-level rise and sediment supply. This research is intended to improve our ability to predict future response to increasing sea-level rise and anthropogenic changes in sediment supply.
     
    Geological Controls on Ice Sheet Stability
     This research utilizes geophysical and geological data from the Antarctic sea floor to increase our understanding of the interaction of ice streams and the substrate on which they rest. Current research focuses on geomorphic features that indicate organized meltwater conduits beneath the ice sheet and the role that meltwater may have played in ice stream instability during the most recent retreat of the ice sheet from the continental shelf.
     

    Using the Sedimentary Record to Examine the Climate History of the Antarctic Peninsula

     

    While the Antarctic Peninsula is not considered a major player in terms of future seal-level rise scenarios, it is a global warming hot spot. Historical temperature records indicate that the Antarctic Peninsula region has been warming much more rapidly than the global mean (3.7 to 1.6 vs. 0.6 to 0.2 oC century-1, respectively) and sea ice coverage has decreased significantly on both sides of the Peninsula. Meanwhile, seven major ice shelves surrounding the Peninsula have retreated over the last few decades, with the largest collapse occurring in March of 2002 (Larsen B ice shelf). Finally, there has been a measurable increase in glacier flow rates with 87% of 244 glaciers examined throughout the Antarctic Peninsula region having retreated over the last 61 years. This trend has been causally linked to warming temperatures, however, the underlying driving mechanism(s) responsible for this warming trend remains uncertain. This raises many important questions including: is the recent rapid warming in the Antarctic Peninsula unprecedented or a natural part of the Earth's climate variability? One way to put this recent warming into perspective is to examine Late Pleistocene to Holocene proxy climate records contained in stratified deposits such as sediments and ice cores. Our research aims at examining century and millennial-scale climate variability in the Antarctic Peninsula region using longs sediment cores collected from bays and fjords of the region. These cores were collected during three separate cruises to the Peninsula region in 2004 through 2007 and provide regional coverage needed to examine the timing of climate events and their cause(s).
