    • Evolution of a Coupled Marine Ice Sheet–Sea Level Model 

      Gomez, Natalya Alissa; Pollard, David; Mitrovica, Jerry; Huybers, Peter John; Clark, Peter U. (American Geophysical Union, 2012)
      We investigate the stability of marine ice sheets by coupling a gravitationally self-consistent sea level model valid for a self-gravitating, viscoelastically deforming Earth to a 1-D marine ice sheet-shelf model. The ...
    • On Sea Level - Ice Sheet Interactions 

      Gomez, Natalya Alissa (2014-02-25)
      This thesis focuses on the physics of static sea-level changes following variations in the distribution of grounded ice and the influence of these changes on the stability and dynamics of marine ice sheets. Gravitational, ...
    • Sea level as a stabilizing factor for marine-ice-sheet grounding lines 

      Gomez, Natalya Alissa; Mitrovica, Jerry; Huybers, Peter John; Clark, Peter U. (Springer Nature, 2010)
      Climate change could potentially destabilize marine ice sheets, which would affect projections of future sea-level rise1, 2, 3, 4. Specifically, an instability mechanism5, 6, 7, 8 has been predicted for marine ice sheets ...
