Ancient Antarctic ice melt is causing sea levels to rise by about 10 metres to about 129,000 years ago, according to the scientists, who warn that it could be done.

New research shows that rising global temperatures cause the West Antarctic ice sheet is melting at a period of time, which is known as the Last of the warm period in between ice ages — about 129,000 to 116,000 years ago.

That is less than 2 degrees Celsius of global warming, the earth is all that is needed is for the catastrophic event.

For the study, the University of New South Wales, the earth scientist, Chris is a version for use in Australia and colleagues have gone to the “blue-ice areas in the vicinity of Patriot Hills, at the edge of the West Antarctic ice sheet.

“Instead of drilling miles into the ice, and we could just walk on the blue ice field and travel back through the millennia,” a version told The Daily Mail. “By taking samples of ice from the surface, we are in a position to be able to reconstruct what may have happened to this precious earth in the past.”

The study provides evidence that the melting of the West Antarctic was a lot of sea level rise, and rise during the Last Interglacial. Then, when the global sea level rise, are expected to be between 19.7 and 29.5 metres higher than it is today.

The scientists used a combination of the sequence of layers of ash deposits from volcanic eruptions, and the analysis of the gas bubbles, can be seen above, along with the DNA of the bacteria, are trapped in the ice, — – to-date with all the different parts of the blue ice at the water’s surface.

“The melting was most likely caused by a less than 2°C of ocean warming on the earth, and that is something that has serious consequences for the future, in view of the ocean, rise in the temperature of Western Antarctica is melting, which is happening today,” a version told the British publication.

The study, which was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists.
