‘Game changer’ – Antarctic melt due to warm water, not air temperature
From the University of California – Irvine something that pretty well makes Steig et al 2009 even more irrelevant, since in that paper they did a survey of air temperatures and then smeared them around the continent using some Mannian style math, which was later shown to be faulty by O’Donnell et al.
Warm ocean drives most Antarctic ice shelf loss, UC Irvine and others show
Findings are a game changer for future forecasts about thawing continent
Irvine, Calif. – Ocean waters melting the undersides of Antarctic ice shelves, not icebergs calving into the sea, are responsible for most of the continent’s ice loss, a study by UC Irvine and others has found.
The first comprehensive survey of all Antarctic ice shelves discovered that basal melt, or…
