Over the past couple of months I’ve been working on a little side project. Elsevier’s Encyclopedia of Ocean Sciences is undergoing an update for its third edition, to be released in 2019, and I’ve written an article for the new version. My contribution, “Ice-induced Plowing of the Seafloor”, is a complete rewrite of an article that hasn’t been updated since 2001 and thus needed to reflect advances in both seafloor observational technology and scientific thinking over the past two decades. The article will also be included in the Elsevier Reference Module in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences.
