Version of Record online: 13 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50178

Key Points

  • Glacier calving causes sharp decline in dense shelf water formation
  • Freshwater input promotes phytoplankton growth, doubles seasonal carbon uptake
  • Meltwater-induced diatom bloom may provide modern analogue to deglaciation
