My friend, Bob McNabb, has written a summary of the paper Chris Larsen, Shad O’Neel, and I just published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters.  You can read Bob’s review here

In his summary, Bob describes some of the more significant results of our work and how these results affect our understanding of the behavior of ocean-ending glaciers.  The full paper, in which we describe our observations and calculations of the ocean’s melting of the below-sea-level glacier terminus, is posted here.  Bob is a post-doctoral researcher in glaciology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he studies tidewater glaciers.
