Disintegration of Marine Ice-sheets Using Novel Optimised Simulations (DOMINOS)

DOMINOS will use computer models to examine calving and associated dynamic processes that could cause the retreat and collapse of Thwaites Glacier. This will reduce uncertainty in the rates of retreat of the Thwaites Glacier and its contribution to sea-level rise.
