Western Antarctica Ice Sheet warming faster than thought
BBC: The Western Antarctic Ice Sheet is warming nearly twice as fast as previously thought, according to a new analysis of temperature records. US researchers say they found the first evidence of warming during the southern hemisphere’s summer months. They’re worried the increased melting of ice could contribute to sea-level rise.
The study has been released by the journal “Nature Geoscience.”
