Upside-down "rivers" of warm ocean water are eroding the fractured edges of thick, floating Antarctic ice shelves from below, helping to create conditions that lead to ice-shelf breakup and sea-level ...

Warm ocean water attacking edges of Antarctica's ice shelves

Upside-down rivers lapping at the bottoms of ice sheets and brilliant blue mini-lakes dotted on top may be speeding up Antarctic melting.Upside-down rivers lapping at the bottoms of ice sheets and brilliant blue mini-lakes dotted on top may be speeding up Antarctic melting.

How Antarctic ice sheets are melting from above and below

Hidden upside-down “rivers” are eroding Antarctic ice shelves, according to the latest study that suggests polar regions are melting faster than previously thought.  As ice shelves float out into the ocean they stretch and crack along the edges, meaning they are particularly vulnerable to erosion from plumes of water from below. Hidden upside-down “rivers” are eroding Antarctic ice shelves, according to the latest study that suggests polar regions are melting faster than previously thought.  As ice shelves float out into the

Hidden upside-down 'rivers' eroding Antarctic ice shelves | The Independent

A new study reveals how local factors influence the Ross Ice Shelf’s stability, refining predictions of how it will change and influence sea rise in the future.

Robots Roaming in Antarctic Waters Reveal Why Ross Ice Shelf Melts Rapidly in Summer

The ocean that surrounds Antarctica plays a crucial role in regulating the mass balance of the continent's ice cover. We now know that the thinning of ice that affects nearly a quarter of the West Antarctic ...

How solar heat drives rapid melting of parts of Antarctica's largest ice shelf

A large portion of an ice shelf that was said to be “hanging by a thread” last month has broken off from the Antarctic mainland, creating one of the world’s largest icebergs, according to a report by British Antarctic research group Project Midaa. It is measured at 5,800 square kilometers, making itA large portion of an ice shelf that was said to be “hanging by a thread” last month has broken off from the Antarctic mainland, creating one of the world’s largest icebergs, according to a report by British Antarctic research group Project Midaa.
