Upside-down, “rivers” of warm ocean water along the edges of the Antarctic ice shelves from underneath, of the creation of the conditions are ripe for a break-up and sea-level rise, according to the researchers.

In a study published Thursday in Science, the Progress, look at this process, which could have an impact on the continent, and in the future.

Hot-water circulation, and the attack on the base of these ice shelves at their most vulnerable points,” he said, Karen Alley, is a visiting assistant professor of earth sciences at the College of Wooster, in Ohio, in a statement. “These effects,” she said. “But no matter how many there are exactly, we don’t know yet. We are required to do.”

Ice shelves float on the ocean, on the borders of the country, on the basis of the polar ice caps, the researchers, and about 75 per cent of the Antarctic continent is surrounded by the extension of the blade.

The shelves can be attached to the rock, and the walls are covered with the bottom of the ocean. When sober, it’s the ice shelves slow the flow of ice from the interior of the continent towards the pacific ocean.

However, when an ice shelf retreats or breaks up, the ice on land that flows much more quickly into the ocean, and the increase in the rates of sea-level rise.
