New USGS Study Documents Rapid Disappearance of Antarctica’s Ice Shelves

Possible Forecast for Continued Antarctica Glacier Loss and Sea-Level Rise Due to Climate Change ? Antarctica’s glaciers are melting more rapidly than previously known because of climate change, according to a new U.S. Geological Survey report prepared in close collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey. ? The USGS study documents for the first time that one ice shelf has completely disappeared and another has lost a chunk three times the size of Rhode Island.? This research is part of a larger ongoing project that is for the first time studying the entire Antarctic coastline.? “This study provides the first insight into the extent of Antarctica’s coastal and glacier change,” Salazar noted.? “The rapid retreat of glaciers there demonstrates once again the profound effects our planet is already experiencing-more rapidly than previously known– as a consequence of climate change.? The scientific work of USGS, which is investigating the impacts of climate change around the world, including an ongoing examination of glaciers, is a critical foundation of the Administration’s commitment to combat climate change.”? The USGS study focuses on Antarctica , which is the earth’s largest reservoir of glacial ice
