Antarctica loses three trillion tonnes of ice in 25 years

BBC:

Antarctica is shedding ice at an accelerating rate.

Satellites monitoring the state of the White Continent indicate some 200 billion tonnes a year are now being lost to the ocean as a result of melting.

This is pushing up global sea levels by 0.6mm annually - a three-fold increase since 2012 when the last such assessment was undertaken.

Scientists report the new numbers in the journal Nature.

Governments will need to take account of the information and its accelerating trend as they plan future defences to protect low-lying coastal communities.

 


The researchers say the losses are occurring predominantly in the West of the continent, where warm waters arem getting under and melting the fronts of glaciers that terminate in the ocean.
