Satellite Study Shows the Size of Melting Ice Beds in Antarctica



Ice hanging off the coast of Antarctica and floating in the ocean melts faster than replenished, even in the pockets of East Antarctica that are generally thought to be less vulnerable to climate change, according to a study published on Monday.

These structures, known as ice shelves, collapsed nearly 4,000 gigatons of their mass between 1994 and 2018, according to new research, which leveraged nearly 25 years of satellite measurements of the thickness of ice. It reflects the findings of many previous studies reporting a recession …
