[ACC29-P07] Sensitivity studies of the position and elevation of Dome Fuji, Antarctica using a high-resolution numerical ice-sheet model
Keywords:Ice-sheet modeling, Dome Fuji
Saito (2002) presents a series of numerical experiments of Antarctic ice sheet using an ice-sheet model IcIES. Possibility of changes in the position of Dome Fuji driven by the evolution of glacial/interglacial climate, as well as a variety of ice-grounded area are discussed, however, the resolution of the ice-sheet model in the study was relatively low (40km). Moreover, only maximum possible or even overestimated patterns of the ice-grounded area were used in the study.
In this study, the work of Saito (2002) is updated using a latest version of IcIES with higher resolution (8km). More detailed sensitivity study of the position/elevation of Dome Fuji to a variety of boundary condition is discussed.
