Extended Data Fig. 6: Ocean-driven versus atmosphere-driven ice loss (regrowth branch).

From: The hysteresis of the Antarctic Ice Sheet

Extended Data Fig. 6

Antarctic ice mass fluxes showing (in gigatonnes per year) the contributions of different atmospheric and oceanic processes to the total ice mass changes over the entire range of GMT anomalies along the lower hysteresis branch derived from the quasi-static reference simulation. Positive flux values denote mass gains, negative values denote mass losses. The sea-level relevant ice-sheet volume (in m SLE) is indicated by the dashed grey line with respect to the right-hand axis.
