Disappearing snow increases risk of collapsing ice shelves in Antarctica

Disappearing snow increases risk of collapsing ice shelves in Antarctica | Coastal Management | Scoop.it
A number of floating ice shelves in Antarctica are at risk of disappearing entirely in the next 200 years, as global warming reduces their snow cover. Their collapse would enhance the discharge of ice into the oceans and increase the rate at which sea-level rises. A rapid reduction of greenhouse gas emissions could save a number of these ice shelves, researchers say.
