London-Sized Glacier Breaks Off In Antarctica

An iceberg broke off from Antarctica last Sunday, researchers said. A massive iceberg, nearly the size of Greater London, separated from the Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica. Researchers first noticed significant fractures in the ice shelf a decade ago, but in recent years, there have been two significant separations.

5.9 Trillions Tonnes Of Ice Lost Due To Climate Change In 25 Years

Most scientists had once assumed that the massive Ice sheets of Antarctica were largely invulnerable to climate change, but not any more. During the past 25 years, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet has contributed significantly to rising sea levels, mainly caused by climate change. It is estimated if, due to some reason, the Eastern two-thirds of the ice sheet melted, the sea would rise by 52 meters.
