Ocean expedition to West Antarctic Ice Sheet seeks to reveal climate history in region with greatest sea ice loss

Scientists on the ocean drilling expedition will explore the remote Amundsen Sea off Antarctica. The West Antarctic Ice Sheet in the Amundsen Sea off Antarctica could play a pivotal role in future sea level rise, but many questions remain unanswered, scientists say.
Now, researchers taking part in an international ocean drilling expedition funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and international partners are on Antarctica's remote Amundsen Sea looking for clues through an analysis of the ice sheet's history.
