Separate research points to devastating role of ocean swell

As sea-ice retreats, floating Antarctic ice shelves are more exposed to destruction by wave action, according to a separate paper also published in Nature today and not affiliated with the previous study.

However, the role of sea ice in buffering ice shelves and continental ice sheets is rarely factored into Antarctic ice-loss modelling, according to lead researcher Dr Rob Massom from the Australian Antarctic Institute.

His team analysed the Larsen A and Larsen B, and Wilkins ice-shelf disintegration events, and found that lack of sea-ice was a common factor.

"It just so happens that offshore from those ice shelves, it's a hotspot of sea-ice loss," Dr Massom said.

"Ice shelves play a significant role in buttressing the discharge of grounded ice from the ice sheet into the ocean, and it's that ice that contributes to sea-level rise."

He argued that sea-ice loss needs to be considered in future modelling in order to more accurately forecast the contribution of the Antarctic ice sheet to sea-level rise in coming decades.

"The disintegration was an eye-opening thing. The glaciers that were feeding into those ice shelves accelerated by up to eight-fold [after the disintegration] and that happened pretty immediately," he said.

"This is a concerning thing if you consider that ice shelves exist around 75 per cent of the periphery of Antarctica. If this kind of thing happens more in the future we have to be aware of that."

Guardian: 205 Feet Of Sea Level Rise By 2095!

In case you forgot for a minute that the left lives in a mindless, fact-free fantasy world, the Guardian is predicting Florida will soon be underwater. Rising seas: ‘Florida is about to be wiped off the map’

Actual data from Florida shows no change in the slow rate of sea level rise over the past century.

The beach at Fort Lauderdale looks exactly the same as 55 years ago.



People on the left (including many prominent climate scientists) simply make things up, refuse to debate, lie to policymakers, and attempt to force their insanity on the rest of the world.

The coldest place on Earth is even chillier than scientists thought: Temperatures plummet to -148F in 'supercold' areas of Antarctica's ice sheet

So a few degrees of atmospheric warming is supposed to melt it??

The coldest place on Earth is even colder than thought, a new study has found.

Researchers discovered tiny valleys near the top of Antarctica's ice sheet reach temperatures of nearly minus 100 degrees Celsius (minus 148 degrees Fahrenheit) in the winter.

The results could change scientists' understanding of just how low temperatures can get at Earth's surface, according to the researchers.

The coldest spot on Earth was found on the East Antarctic Plateau, a high snowy plateau in central Antarctica that encompasses the South Pole.

The record breaking temperatures occur occurred in small hollows 2 to 3 meters (6 to 9 feet) deep in the surface of the ice, on the southern side of high ridges on the plateau.

The record of minus 98 degrees Celsius is about as cold as it is possible to get at Earth's surface, according to the researchers.

Scientists used satellite data between 2004 and 2016 to come up with the minus 144 degrees Fahrenheit figure, as the eastern plateau of Antartica is a barren, snowy region where surface-based weather instruments aren't available .

Small low-lying dips in the Antarctic ice sheet had the most frigid temperatures, they found.

Because cold air is dense, it funnels into the dips where it may stay trapped for several days when skies are clear and winds are light.

This is similar to how cold air drains into valley locations at night elsewhere in the world.

Scientists first announced in 2013 they had found the lowest temperatures on Earth's surface in the area.

You look at those two pictures and see them as EXACTLY THE SAME?

This is evidence staring you in the face.
