In a separate analysis piece in Nature today, climate scientist and Antarctic policy expert Professor Rob DeConto warned that Antarctica may contribute more to sea-level rise than previously thought.
Forces "that are driving these changes are not going to get any better in a warming climate", said University of Colorado ice scientist Waleed Abdalati, a former NASA chief scientist who wasn't part of the study team.
This in turn will drive big changes in the marine ecosystems of the Antarctic and for the first time permit invasive pests to colonise what was once a pristine, unspoiled landscape. To put that into perspective, the massive iceberg that broke off from Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf in July 2017 - one of the largest icebergs in recorded history - weighed over 1 trillion tons, and was roughly the size of the state of Delaware. That loss made global oceans rise about three-tenths of an inch, or 7.6 millimeters.
East Antarctica, which makes up two-thirds of the continent, is a remote region of an already remote location, where data is scarcer because there are fewer measurement stations, Koppes said. These scenarios are more like data-driven conversation starters according to the authors, all who have won the Tinker-Muse Prize for Science and Policy in Antarctica game out what could happen if the world does nothing - or if policy-makers take significant action in the next 10 years to stop the destruction. The water nibbles at the floating edges of ice sheets from below.
"The ice sheet is now losing three times as much ice", Shepherd told NPR, adding that the annual sea level rise attributed to Antarctica has similarly tripled ― from 0.2 mm to 0.6 mm. "But remember for the northern hemisphere, for North America, the fact that the location in West Antarctica is where the action is amplifies that rate of sea level rise by up to an about additional 25 percent in a city like Boston or NY". "This has to be a concern for the governments we trust to protect our coastal cities and communities", said Shephard. It also means the ice cliffs at the snout of those glaciers are getting taller and more prone to collapse. "Thanks to the satellites our space agencies have launched, we can now track their ice losses and global sea level contribution with confidence".
There are "many, many communities where sea level at high tide is really reaching the brim and spilling into the streets more often that it did just decades ago", he said.
