      The Antarctic Ice Sheet is an important indicator of climate change and driver of sea-level rise. Here we combine satellite observations of its changing volume, flow and gravitational attraction.   Confirms what I’ve been saying all along! NASA scientists admit that a massive heat source almost as hot as the Yellowstone supervolcano may be melting the Antarctic ice sheet from below. It seems like a no-brainer to me. I mean, how can lakes and rivers be flowing beneath the ice unless there’s a heat source down Read more NASA – Supervolcano may be melting Antarctic .

      According to this study, the gains in ice from increased precipitation in the continent's interior, particularly across the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, is enough to offset the melting occurring in the West Antarctic and Antarctic Peninsula. What these reports usually are missing are several critical points: This is one NASA study. Climate change Antarctica is melting from below and that's bad news. So far, the Antarctic was seen as relatively stable. But a new study suggests that climate change is affecting the polar region.

      Global Warming Is Changing the Winds Off Antarctica, Driving Ice Melt A new study connects the dots between climate change and faster melting of the West Antarctic . The climate of Antarctica is the coldest on Earth.. The continent is also extremely dry (it is technically a desert), averaging mm ( in) of precipitation per year. Snow rarely melts on most parts of the continent, and, after being compressed, becomes the glacier ice that makes up the ice sheet. Weather fronts rarely penetrate far into the continent, because of the katabatic winds.
