Antarctic glaciers vulnerable to rising temperatures

Location of main Antarctic ice core drilling sites and the marine sediment core at Site U1361. The map shows the subglacial bedrock elevation above sea level (color scale, m) and the Antarctic ice sheet present-day surface elevation above sea level (contours, m). The ice core drilling sites of Talos Dome (TD), Dome C (DC), Vostok (VK), and Dome F (DF) and the marine sediment core at Site U1361 are indicated with blue dots. The studied area of the Wilkes Subglacial Basin is delimited by the red dashed contour.
