Glacio-isostasy and glacial ice load at Law Dome, Wilkes Land, East Antarctica

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper investigates the glacio-isostatic contribution of increased ice extent and thickness on the Law Dome, an ice cap that forms a dome within the margin of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS), and around the coastal slope of the Wilkes Land sector of East Antarctica during the last glacial maximum (LGM). The ice flow on the Law Dome is independent of EAIS flow. The investigation focuses on the evidence for Holocene relative sea-level lowering around the Law Dome, on the reconstruction of former glacial-age ice loads, and on the deglaciation chronology required to force the amount and timing of relative sea-level lowering
