Ice moves. It flows in streams and channels. It creeps and compresses and deforms. We see it best perhaps in glaciers birthing icebergs, frozen rivers emptying into the ocean. Now, for the first time ever, we can see just how much ice moves across the entire Antarctic continent, and the view offers up a few big surprises. This new knowledge could help scientists understand how ice is changing now and how it will change as our climate continues to warm in the future. It will help scientists predict how much sea levels will rise as ice melts in coming decades. This new view of Antarctica in motion comes from thousands of measurements taken by radar instruments on satellites from Canada, Japan, and the European Space Agency between 1996 and 2009. Eric Rignot of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the University of California Irvine led the team of scientists that pieced toge...
