The Antarctic Peninsula (AP) has been one of the most rapidly warming regions on this planet. This warming has been accompanied by major glaciological changes such as tidewater glacier retreat, ice-shelf retreat and collapse alongside acceleration of outlet glaciers in response to ice-shelf removal. As faster owing glaciers deliver more ice from the ice sheet's interior to the margins, the AP has been identified as an important contributor to global sea-level rise (SLR). However, comprehensible SLR projections of the AP induced by ice dynamics over the next three centuries are still lacking. In this thesis, numerical ice-sheet models are utilised to present scenario-based ice dynamic SLR projections for the AP.
