Much of the climate change-related research published recently has focused on the impact of warming temperatures on the West Antarctic ice sheet – but what is it about this region that causes scientists to be so interested in it?

New Sea Level Threat Created From Changing Antarctic Winds

A team of scientists from Reno, Nevada’s Desert Research Institute (DRI) led by Michael Sigl and Joe McConnell have reconstructed historic volcanic sulfate emissions from the Southern Hemisphere.

West Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier Is Melting Due To Geothermal Heat
2014-06-10 10:18:21

Researchers from the Institute for Geophysics at The University of Texas at Austin (UTIG) have discovered that Thwaites Glacier is being eroded by the ocean, as well as being melted from geothermal heat.

Antarctic Ice Sheet Became Unstable At The End Of The Last Ice Age

WASHINGTON, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new study by researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine, finds a rapidly melting section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet

Major Increase In West Antarctic Glacial Loss

Six massive glaciers in West Antarctica are moving faster than they did 40 years ago, causing more ice to discharge into the ocean and global sea level to rise, according to new research.
