    Abstract

    In this paper, we report recent changes in the spatial extent of the Pine Island Glacier. The 22% reduction in areal extent means that the newly exposed marine area has been classified as a Stage 1 Special Area for Scientific Study (SASS) in accordance with Conservation Measure 24-04.

    This paper provides additional information to that included in COMM CIRC 21/76, allowing WG-EMM opportunity to comment.
