The team of the glaciers is unstable as they are gaining through snowfall. Since 1992, the thinning has spread over 24% of the West Coast of the Antarctica and is the lingering ice.
The study, published today in Geophysical Research Letters used by the ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat, and CryoSat-2 satellite altimeter missions between 1992 and 2017 and simulations of snowfall over the same period produced by the RACMO regional climate model.
Together, these are less snowfall, and
Lead author and CPOM Director Professor Andy Shepherd explained: "The ice sheet has been thinned by extraordinary amounts, and so we have to do it. "
They found that fluctuations in snowfall tendencies.
Professor Shepherd added: "Knowing how much snow has fallen on a satellite record.
"Altogether, ice losses from East and West Antarctica have contributed 4.6 mm
