Antarctic ice samples: What do they say about global warming?

Antarctic ice samples: What do they say about global warming? | Antarctic research | Scoop.it
Antarctic ice core samples, up to 150,000 years old, may help scientists estimate whether it will take 50 years - or 500 years - for the Ross Ice Shelf to collapse at the current rate of climate change.
