Antarctic Ice Loss Has Tripled Since 2012

The Antarctic Ice Sheet has lost 3 trillion tons of ice since 1992, according to a new analysis published in the journal Nature . During this period, melting from warmer ocean waters led to a tripling of ice-loss rates in West Antarctica, from 53 billion to 159 billion tons per year. Antarctica’s ice sheets contain enough frozen water to raise sea levels globally about 190 feet. Scientists have been closely tracking ice loss in recent decades to understand both the current and future impacts of climate change. The analysis , which analyzed 24 independent satellite-based estimates of ice loss, finds that prior to 2012, Antarctica was losing ice at a steady rate of 76 billion tons per year. Since then there has been a three-fold increase; between 2012 and 2017, the continent lost 219 billion tons of ice per year. West Antarctica has experienced the fastest loss of ice, large...
