British scientists plan to use a yellow submarine to explore beneath a giant melting Antarctic glacier whose collapse could raise sea levels 4 inches. The scientists hope to find out why Pine Island Glacier, flowing west-northwest along the south side of the Hudson Mountains into Pine Island Bay, Amundsen

At 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 Celsius, ice changes to water. This simple, unique fact dominates the climate in Earth's polar regions. Using satellites to detect changes over time, NASA researchers and NASA-funded university scientists have found that Earth's ice cover is changing rapidly near its poles. Recent studies point to new evidence of relationships between climate warming, ice changes and sea level rise.
