Feng He and Zhengyu Liu are coauthors on a recent paper in Nature Communications investigating the mechanisms for the global scale glacier retreat during the last deglaciation. The study shows while insolation, ice sheets and ocean circulation modulated glacier responses regionally, global scale glacier retreat is most likely related to increasing greenhouse gas concentrations during the last ice age termination, which implies that the current worldwide glaciers are prone to melting away due to anthropogenic carbon emissions.
