Evolution of the Antarctic ice sheet

Posted by External 1 day 5 hours ago General
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com — A new light has been shed on the stability of the Antarctic ice sheet. It shows for the first time that ice rises (pinning points that keep the floating parts of ice sheets in place) are formed during the transition between glacial and interglacial periods, which significantly slows down the response of the ice sheet to climate change.

Stable Antarctic glaciers are now melting

Posted by External 3 days ago General
http://www.enn.com — A dramatic shift has taken place in the glaciers of the southern Antarctic peninsula, writes Bert Wouters. Six years ago these previously stable bodies suddenly stated shedding 60 cubic kilometres of ice per year into the ocean. A stark warning of further surprises to come?The fact that so many glaciers in such a large region suddenly started to lose ice came as a surprise. It shows a very fast r Read More

Sudden onset of ice loss in Antarctica so large it affects Earth's gravity field

Posted by External 6 days ago General
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com — Scientists have observed a sudden increase of ice loss in a previously stable region of Antarctica. The ice loss in the region is so large that it causes small changes in the gravity field of the Earth. Read More
