  • This data set presents contents of the clay minerals smectite, illite, chlorite and kaolinite analysed on the clay fraction (<2 micrometer) of seafloor surface sediments. The sediments were recovered with a mega-corer (MC), box corer (BC), kasten corer (KC) or jumbo gravity corer (JGC) on the Amundsen Sea continental shelf in the vicinity of Thwaites Glacier and Pine Island Glacier. Sediment cores were collected during cruises NBP1902 (Jan-Mar 2019) and NBP2002 (Jan-Mar 2020) with RV/IB Nathaniel B. Palmer as part of the Thwaites Offshore Research (THOR) project on behalf of the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration (ITGC) programme. The clay mineral contents are given in percentages and subbottom depth in centimetres (cm). NERC grant NE/S006664/1 and NSFPLR grant no. 1738942. This data was collected as part of the NERC-NSF funded International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration (ITGC) program.

  • This data set presents contents of the clay minerals smectite, illite, chlorite and kaolinite analysed on the clay fraction (less than 2 micrometers) of Pleistocene-Holocene drift sediments recovered at Hole U1532A on the Amundsen Sea continental rise during IODP Exp379 with RV JOIDES Resolution in Jan-Mar 2019. The clay mineral contents are given in percentages (%) both versus expedition number, site number, hole ID, core number, drill core type (H: advanced piston corer system, X: extended core barrel system; R: rotary core barrel system), section number (sect), section half (W: work; A: archive) and depth of the top and bottom of the sample within a section or core catcher (CC) in centimetres (cm) and versus depth below seafloor (CSF-A) in metres (m). The d-values (in Angstrom) and integral breadths (IB, delta 2theta) of the clay minerals smectite and illite as well as the ratios between the areas of the 5 Angstrom and 10 Angstrom peaks of illite are also given. The clay mineral data were generated and analysed by Dr Claus-Dieter Hillenbrand (British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, United Kingdom) and Prof Werner Ehrmann (Institute of Geophysics and Geology, University of Leipzig, Germany).

  • This data set represents the model results plotted in the figures in Bett et al. (2020). Data portrays Amundsen Sea freshwater fluxes and freshwater passive tracer results, along with the results on the effect of grounded icebergs and iceberg melt on sea ice and oceanic heat content. These results are derived from Amundsen Sea regional model simulations over the period 1979-2018, with the first 10 years regarded as model spin up. For full descriptions of the results plotted in each figure see Bett et al. (2020).

  • This is the output from high-resolution model simulations of ocean conditions and melting beneath the floating part of Thwaites Glacier. The model is designed to study how these conditions change as the geometry of Thwaites Glacier evolved from 2011-2022. There is one simulation using the geometry from each year during this period, derived from satellite observations. The simulations are repeated for different ocean model forcing conditions, as described in the associated paper. PH was supported by the NERC/NSF Thwaites-MELT project (NE/S006656/1). ITGC contribution number 099. *******PLEASE BE ADVISED TO USE VERSION 2.0 DATA******* (Version 1 had the seabed bathymetry and ice shelf topography files incorrectly oriented.)
