Water flows through the Antarctic

  • Others In the first such continent-wide study, scientists found extensive runoffs of meltwater over parts of the Antarctic ice during the short summer. Researchers already knew such features existed, but assumed that they were mostly confined to the fastest-warming northernmost areas of Antarctica. Much of the newly mapped drainages are not new, but the fact that they exist at all matters; they seem to multiply with small increases in temperature, so the warming forecast for this century could quickly increase their impact on sea levels. A companion study examines how such systems could affect the great ice shelves that surround the continent, which some researchers fear could collapse and cause catastrophic sea level rises. Both studies appear this week in the leading journal Nature.
