  • For this work, Sadai’s task was to add accelerated AIS melting and icebergs into simulations of Earth’s future climate.
  • All this additional meltwater and sea ice production dramatically slows the pace of future warming around Antarctica, the researchers report — seemingly welcome news.
  • Even though atmospheric warming slows, the deep sea waters around Antarctica actually warm faster in their model.
