Description :
This paper reviews the substantial progress made in our understanding of the links between marine-terminating Arctic outlet glacier behaviour and the ocean-climate system during the past 20 years, when many ice masses have rapidly lost mass. Specifically, the AA. assess 3 primary climatic/oceanic controls on outlet glacier dynamics, namely air temperature, ocean temperature and sea ice concentrations, and discuss key linkages between them. They highlight key uncertainties surrounding marine-terminating Arctic outlet glacier response to climatic/oceanic forcing, and recommend directions for future research.
