The rapid retreat of Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier has perhaps reached a point of no return, say three international modeling teams who ran a number of simulations to model the glacier’s behavior. To do this work, they relied on three different ice-flow models including BISICLES, which was developed by a collaboration that included Berkeley Lab computational scientists.
