Abstract

Breaking the Ice: Theorizing the Arctic Thaw;New Brunswick, New Jersey, 12-14 April 2012 Some of the most striking contemporary environmental changes are the warming of the Arctic region and increased mass loss from the Greenland ice sheet. For example, areas of summer melt atop Greenland's massive ice sheet continue to expand, sending large volumes of ice and meltwater into surrounding seas and oceans. This may have profound implications for regional hydrology and marine biogeochemical cycles, as well as global sea level rise. While these trends are readily observable, urgent questions regarding how the Greenland ice sheet will respond to future climate change remain unanswered.
