Rapid climate change on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) has challenged previous explanations of Antarctic climate change that focused on strengthening of circumpolar westerlies. A recent study linked surface melting conditions on the WAIS to atmospheric blocking over the Amundsen Sea region and to a negative phase of the southern annular mode, both of which correlate with El Niño in the tropical Pacific.
