New Study: Moderate warming will lead to huge increases in Sea level

Antarctic

A new study has been published in nature that reveals some very worrying data. Looking back to see what has actually happened in the past is a good way to work out what is coming as we warm the planet, and it is that data that reveals the degree of warming required to melt vast … Read moreNew Study: Moderate warming will lead to huge increases in Sea level

Study: East Antarctica ice sheet is becoming unstable

totten artarctica

In the East of Antarctica there are two ice sheets named “Totten” and also “Moscow University”. These together contain enough ice to raise sea level by as mush as five meters. There is a new study that has been published that used the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites to measure what is currently … Read moreStudy: East Antarctica ice sheet is becoming unstable

Antarctic ice loss has tripled in a decade. If that continues, we are in serious trouble.

antarctic

It is big news from the Antarctic and many media outlets have quite rightly picked it up and reported on this, so let’s dig into it a bit, by going to the alpha source. Something dramatic is happening in the Antarctic. We have precise measurements going back to 1992 when satellites enabled us to measure what … Read moreAntarctic ice loss has tripled in a decade.

Thwaites Glacier: Biggest ever Antarctic field campaign

Thwaites

The Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica is not simply some far away place of scientific interest, but instead has become the focus of the biggest ever Antarctic field campaign. It has become apparent that what is happening there right now has the potential to greatly impact us … soon. Because of the risk, the biggest ever joint UK-US … Read moreThwaites Glacier: Biggest ever Antarctic field campaign

Antarctica Glaciers are in trouble – #Climate

Antarctic glacier

A new study has been published that reveals that warm ocean currents are rapidly eating away at Antarctic Glaciers at a rather alarming rate. The key to understanding this comes via a satellite analysis of the grounding lines of Antarctic glaciers. That’s the point at which the glacier rests on solid land. What has been … Read moreAntarctica Glaciers are in trouble – #Climate

Can we delay future sea level rise?

sea level

A new paper has been published that examines one possible means for delaying the inevitable sea-level rise that is happening. We know that sea level is rising and that the rate of that sea level rise is accelerating. We also understand the reason why it is happening. The cause is human generated fossil fuel emissions of … Read moreCan we delay future sea level rise?
