Antarctica Ramps Up Sea Level Rise
Ice losses from Antarctica have increased global sea levels by 7.6 mm since 1992, with two fifths of this rise (3.0 mm) coming in the last five years alone. The findings are from a major climate assessment known as the Ice Sheet Mass Balance Inter-comparison Exercise (IMBIE). It is the most complete picture of Antarctic ice sheet change to date - 84 scientists from 44 international organisations, including Durham University, combined 24 satellite surveys to produce the assessment.

Our Rising Oceans (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 1)
Our oceans are rising. With human use of hydrocarbons skyrocketing, waters around the globe are getting hotter and, now, this warm sub-surface water is washing into Antarctica’s massive western glaciers causing the glaciers to retreat and break off. Antarctica holds 90% of the world’s ice and 70% of its freshwater, so if even a small fraction of the ice sheet in Antarctica melts, the resulting sea level rise will completely remap the world as we know it – and it is already happening. In the last decade, some of the most significant glaciers here have tripled their melt rate. VICE founder Shane Smith travels to the bottom of the world to investigate the instability of the West Antarctic ice sheet and to see first hand how the continent is melting -- and VICE follows the rising oceans to Bangladesh for a glimpse into the world's underwater future. From the UN Climate conference to the People's Climate March to the forces that deny the science of global climate change, this special extended episode covers all sides of the issue and all corners of the globe, ending with a special interview with Vice President Joe Biden.

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted
We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

Sea Level Rising‪ - Antarctic Ice Sheet is Melting - Rising of Sea Level
Sea Level Rising - Antarctic Ice Sheet is Melting - Rising of Sea Level Watch: Spider surfs on water: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnD784lmE1k SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxczM-a4Zbg80xXKMc7J-Fg Like Our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Technology-Gator-1080740991957622/ --------VIDEO TRANSCRIPT-------- The idea of unprecedented geo-engineering such as pumping water masses onto the Antarctic continent has been investigated by scientists at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact. While the pumped water would certainly freeze to solid ice, the weight of it would speed up the ice-flow into the ocean at the Antarctic coast. To store the water for a millenium, it would have to be pumped at least 700 kilometer inland, the team found. Overall that would require more than one tenth of the present annual global energy supply to balance the current rate of sea-level rise. Lead-author Katja Frieler said, "We explored a way to at least delay the rise of sea level we can no longer avoid by even the strictest climate-change mitigation strategies. This is estimated to reach about 40 cm by the end of the century. Our approach is definitely extreme, but so is the challenge of sea-level rise." Burning fossil fuels leads to greenhouse-gas emissions that drive up global temperatures. Consequently, the thermal expansion of ocean water and the melting of glaciers and ice-sheets slowly raise sea levels, which will continue for millennia. Under unabated warming, sea level rise may exceed 130 centimeters by 2100. "This is huge. Local adaptation, for instance building dikes, will not be physically possible or economically feasible everywhere," Frieler says, adding "Protection may depend on your economic situation - so New York might be saved, but sadly not Bangladesh, and this clearly raises an equity issue." She noted that they wanted to check whether sacrificing the uninhabited Antarctic region might theoretically enable them to save populated shores around the world. Rising oceans are already increasing storm surge risks, threatening millions of people worldwide, and in the long run can redraw the planet's coastlines. The scientists addressed the problem from an ice-dynamics perspective, using state-of-the-art computer simulations of Antarctica. Since the ice is continually moving, ocean water put on its surface can only delay sea-level rise and if it is placed too close to the coast, ice-sheet mass loss and thus sea-level rise after some time could even increase, they found. As a consequence the water has to be pumped a long way inland onto the ice sheet. The costs are expected to be much higher than those associated with local adaptation in other studies, though these measures by definition are limited in scope and scale, the scientists stated. "The magnitude of sea-level rise is so enormous, it turns out it is unlikely that any engineering approach imaginable can mitigate it," concludes co-author Anders Levermann, adding "Even if this was feasible, it would only buy time - when we stop the pumping one day, additional discharge from Antarctica will increase the rate of sea-level rise even beyond the warming-induced rate. This would mean putting another sea-level debt onto future generations." Also, the most sensitive coastal ecosystems of Antarctica would of course be seriously affected by this measure. #Sea Level #Sea Level Rising #Antarctic Ice Sheet #Antarctic Ice Sheet is Melting #Melting of Antarctic Ice Sheet #Rising of Sea Level #Seal Level Rise

Fears of sea level rise after the discovery of 'upside down canyons in Antarctica
While scientists are aware that Antarctica's ice shelves are thinning, a new finding suggests they could be even more fragile than realised. Researchers have discovered huge 'upside canyons' through the underside of a key Antarctic ice shelf – although they are unsure how they form, or how they affect stability. The findings shed new light on Antarctica's previously hidden world and have raised fears of more rapid sea level from global warming.

How much will the melting ice shelves of Antarctica contribute to global sea level rise?
Antarctica's melting ice A while ago a climate scientist delegation from the TU Delft packed their bags and travelled to the icy plains of Antarctica to research the melting of ice shelves. The understanding of this process is essential for making correct climate models which can accurately predict the future sea level rise due to ice melting. Satellite images were combined with field experiments, where they witnessed melting processes such as enormous rivers which drain away into holes, and lakes under meters of ice. The experiments helped the scientists gain a better understanding of how these delicate processes work, and will help build more accurate climate models in the future. This research will be published in Nature Climate Change. Interested in the paper written about this research?

How much is sea level rising? Climate Change Impact on Mumbai & Kolkata
Please Like, Share and Subscribe our channel. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet: Sea Level the same all over the world? The news that is available to the people is mostly rumor, and you also know that there are no feet of rumor, that is why it spreads very fast. But global warming is such a thing which we can do to sweat. Do not know if you will ever notice or not. Miami is the city and it used to be all around this island. But this was the red plate which was also land on the same, but due to global warming, the water level of the sea came up so much, that is, according to the report, 20 feet water has come up there. So this is not just about here, but on every seafront of the world there is something like this on our earth. If India speaks of the UN, by 2050, more than 4 million people in India are at risk. Especially the people of Mumbai and Kolkata city. Together, Bangladesh and China will be the same. The Dhaka-Dhaka and Shanghai city of China will also be covered. Science also has indicated about the destruction of the Earth. That day is not far away when the Earth's dust will start from the 2 million 24 thousand miles of the earth with a moat in the sea. Because the melting snow of the Pole region has caused trouble to emerge. If you remember, a few weeks ago, a 5800 sq. Km large frost had broken apart in Antarctica. This is not a small thick iceberg, this iceberg is 4 times bigger than the heart of India. Its estimated weight is more than 1000 million tonnes. Due to the separation from Antarctica, this iceberg will now roam the ocean and there will be a danger for ships coming out there. NASA's Aqua Moody's Satellite has been monitoring the iceberg for a long time. Because in Antarctica, the crack was seen in the ice some time ago. Which means that at any place, a big piece of ice will be separated from Antarctica. Increasing temperature has caused an increase in the incidence of ice fragmentation in Antarctica. In the year 2000, ice fragment of 11000 square kilometers was separated, which was the biggest event till date. His name was A-68. If the look of the threat was seen in the iceberg, the Titanic ship collided with such a piece of ice and was devastated. Now the iceberg that breaks apart, keeps roaming in the water of the sea, and by changing its place again and again it will melt. From which the fragment of a big ice melt will come from the sea level of the countries near the equator. And many small island insides in the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean will go to Dubai. Scientists in the North Antarctica research team say that in the state of the big ice only five big ice pieces remain. From that place called "Markham Ice Shield" was separated from the island of Ellesmere in August. In the last decade, due to the rest of the Earth, Antarctica has increased the temperature by a lot of speed, which is a huge problem. Because people have developed indiscriminate development, they have created problems for the earth itself. And if all the pigs in the Dhruv state get piggy in one go, then the entire sea level of the world will increase to 60 ft and also the coastal cities will be submerged in the water. By 2050, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia and the Philippines have the potential to increase the sea level, and all of them are 5 million 80 million, that is why many people are at risk. But more than that, most of the government in the world is ignoring this issue. As the time passes, the earth will continue to dwindle, and the sea will continue to grow. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music by : Fanfare for Space by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)

Study reveals new Antarctic process contributing to sea level rise & climate change
A new IMAS-led study has revealed a previously undocumented process where melting glacial ice sheets change the ocean in a way that further accelerates the rate of ice melt and sea level rise. Led by IMAS PhD student Alessandro Silvano and published in the journal Science Advances, the research found that glacial meltwater makes the ocean’s surface layer less salty and more buoyant, preventing deep mixing in winter and allowing warm water at depth to retain its heat and further melt glaciers from below.
Largest Glacier East Antarctic may add to Sea Level Rise (Totten Glacier)
Totten Glacier, the largest glacier in East Antarctica, is being melted from below by warm water that reaches the ice when winds over the ocean are strong — a cause for concern because the glacier holds more than 11 feet of sea level rise and acts as a plug that helps lock in the ice of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. “Totten has been called the sleeping giant because it’s huge and has been seen as insensitive to changes in its environment,” said lead author Chad Greene https://news.utexas.edu/2017/11/01/winds-driving-warm-water-under-east-antarctic Jamin Greenbaum on Circumpolar Deepwater https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtkRKZ09kmQ Wind Driving Warm Water Under East Antarctica's Totten Glacier Ice Shelf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx56rbki_kI Expert explains Future Sea Level Rise (2017) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAPPq43iRLs

Sea levels may rise due to huge iceberg breaks off in Antarctica
Contact [email protected] to license this or any News Direct video For story suggestions please contact [email protected] RESTRICTIONS: NONE NASA reported that an iceberg about the size of the state of Delaware split off from Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf between July 10 and July 12. Scientists warn that the breakoff can trigger new ice cracks and cause even more icebergs to break off. Ice shelves are the floating parts of glaciers which act as a support mechanism. In a stable glacier-ice shelf system, the glacier's downhill movement is offset by the buoyant force of the water at the ice shelf front. The system is destabilized when warmer temperatures melt both the surface and underside of the ice shelves, this eventually leads to calving. However, collapsed ice shelves do not directly contribute to sea level rise because they are floating. Once the ice shelves are calved, the buoyant force that previously offset glacier flow is gone, and then glacier can then slide into the ocean, which would rapidly affect sea levels. "The Antarctic Peninsula has been one of the fastest warming places on the planet throughout the latter half of the 20th century. This warming has driven really profound environmental changes, including the collapse of Larsen A and B. But with the rift on Larsen C, we haven't made a direct connection with the warming climate. Still, there are definitely mechanisms by which this rift could be linked to climate change, most notably through warmer ocean waters eating away at the base of the shelf, " Dan McGrath, a glaciologist at Colorado State University who has been studying the Larsen C ice shelf since 2008 said in a NASA article. Experts say the remaining 90 percent of the Larsen C ice shelf is held in place by the Bawden Ice Rise to the north of the rift and Gipps Ice Rise to the south, therefore the ice shelf is unlikely to collapse in the near term. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1. Stable glacier-ice shelf system 2. Warmer temperatures leads to ice shelf calving; collapsed ice shelf doesn't now lead to sea level rise 3. Glacier slides into the sea; sea level rises VOICEOVER (in English): "Ice shelves are the floating parts of glaciers which act as a support mechanism.

Sea levels could rise three feet by 2100, study projects
Antarctica is losing ice three times faster than it was in 2007 as greenhouse gas emissions by human activity contribute to global warming. A study in Nature says that sea levels could rise between three and six feet by 2100, with Antarctica contributing at least six inches if its ice melt continues at the current rate. Dr. Benjamin Strauss, president and CEO of Climate Central, joins Hari Sreenivasan.

Melting Of Antarctic Ice Sheet And 3 Meter Sea Level Rise Inevitable
For more WORLD NEWS "SUBSCRIBE" US MIAMI: Sea levels are rising around the world, and the latest satellite data suggests that three feet (one meter) or more is unavoidable in the next 100-200 years, NASA scientists said Wednesday. Ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are melting faster than ever, and oceans are warming and expanding much more rapidly than they have in years past. Rising seas will have "profound impacts" around the world, said Michael Freilich, director of NASA's Earth Science Division. "More than 150 million people, most of them in Asia, live within one meter of present sea level," he said. Low-lying US states such as Florida are at risk of disappearing, as are some of the world's major cities such as Singapore and Tokyo. "It may entirely eliminate some Pacific island nations," he said. There is no doubt that global coastlines will look very different in years to come, US space agency experts told reporters on a conference call to discuss the latest data on sea level rise. "Right now we have committed to probably more than three feet (one meter) of sea level rise, just based on the warming we have had so far," said Steve Nerem of the University of Colorado, Boulder and leader of NASA's sea level rise team It will very likely get worse in the future," he told reporters. "The biggest uncertainty is predicting how quickly the polar ice sheets will melt."

How does Antarctic ice loss compare to other sources of sea level rise?
The rate of sea level rise resulting from the melting of the Antarctic ice sheet has tripled over the past five years, according to new research from a global team of scientists. At a press conference held in London, scientists said the results suggest that Antarctica has become “one of the largest contributors to sea level rise”. Dr Erik Ivins, co-leader of IMBIE and a senior research scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, explains that Antarctic melting could become a far larger driver of sea level rise than melting from Greenland.

Eric Rignot: Ice Sheet Systems and Sea Level Change (Sea level rise)
Scientific Discipline: Cryosphere Speaker: Eric Rignot (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory) Abstract Modern views of ice sheets provided by satellites, airborne surveys, in situ data and paleoclimate records while transformative of glaciology have not fundamentally changed concerns about ice sheet stability and collapse that emerged in the 1970's. Motivated by the desire to learn more about ice sheets using new technologies, we stumbled on an unexplored field of science and witnessed surprising changes before realizing that most were coming too fast, soon and large. Ice sheets are integrant part of the Earth system; they interact vigorously with the atmosphere and the oceans, yet most of this interaction is not part of current global climate models. Since we have never witnessed the collapse of a marine ice sheet, observations and exploration remain critical sentinels. At present, these observations suggest that Antarctica and Greenland have been launched into a path of multi-meter sea level rise caused by rapid climate warming. While the current loss of ice sheet mass to the ocean remains a trickle, every mm of sea level change will take centuries of climate reversal to get back, several major marine-terminating sectors have been pushed out of equilibrium, and ice shelves are irremediably being lost. As glaciers retreat from their salty, warm, oceanic margins, they will melt away and retreat slower, but concerns remain about sea level change from vastly marine-based sectors: 2-m sea level equivalent in Greenland and 23-m in Antarctica. Significant changes affect 2/4 marine-based sectors in Greenland - Jakobshavn Isbræ. and the northeast stream - with Petermann Gl. not far behind. Major changes have affected the Amundsen Sea sector of West Antarctica since the 1980s. Smaller yet significant changes affect the marine-based Wilkes Land sector of East Antarctica, a reminder that not all marine-based ice is in West Antarctica. Major advances in reducing uncertainties in sea level projections will require massive, interdisciplinary efforts that are not currently in place but are getting there. Projection scenarios are overwhelmingly conservative, pushed up by observations, awaiting more detailed knowledge of ocean circulation, winds, ice-ocean interaction, and mechanics of rapid ice fracture, not to mention the mere definition of static boundaries (ice thickness and sea floor bathymetry). https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm15/meetingapp.cgi/Paper/60094 Related The John F.
