Carbon cycle feedbacks during the Oligocene-Miocene transient glaciation

Article English OPEN
Mawbey, Elaine M.; Lear, Caroline Helen;

Ice sheet models suggest that once formed, the large, high-\ud altitude East Antarctic Ice Sheet was relatively self-stabilizing, due to its cold upper surface. The ice sheet hysteresis problem results from an inability to reconcile this expectation with geological evid... View more
