Hidden paths could be behind Antarctic glacier melt: study
Scientists have discovered two pathways that are likely channelling warm ocean water under a massive Antarctic glacier, which could contribute to rising global sea levels, a study revealed Tuesday.
The 120-kilometre (75 miles) long Totten Glacier, more than 30 kilometres wide, is the largest in East Antarctica and melting more quickly than others in the area.
Research published in the journal Nature Geoscience showed that a trough just under five kilometres wide has formed as a gateway deep underneath the glacier, along with another tunnel.
These could allow warmer sea water to penetrate the glacier base, the researchers said.
“The Totten Glacier is the most rapidly thinning glacier in East Antarctica and this melt has the potential to drive substantial regional ice loss,” Australian Antarctic Division glaciologist Jason Roberts said.
“The study identifies direct pathways for warm ocean water to reach under the glacier; a likely reason for the observed thinning.”
During a voyage to the frozen region during the past southern hemisphere summer, researchers found the waters around Totten Glacier were around 1.5 degrees Celsius warmer than other areas.
Up until recently the East Antarctica ice sheet was thought to be surrounded by cold waters and therefore very stable and unlikely to change much.
The Australian Antarctic Division said there was enough ice in the Totten Glacier alone to raise global sea levels by at least 3.5 metres, roughly equivalent to the projected contribution of the entire West Antarctic Ice Sheet, if it were to completely collapse.
“While the Totten melt may take many centuries, once change has begun our analysis reveals it would likely be irreversible,” said lead author of the study Jamin Greenbaum, a PhD student at the University of Texas.
The study, which included researchers from Australia, Britain and the United States, used aerial surveys from Australia’s Casey station to detect the deep trenches.
Aircraft equipped with radar, laser and other sensors for determining ice thickness and mapping the bedrock and seafloor bathymetry flew over the glacier over five summers from 2008 to 2013.
The findings from this study present a strong case for using aerial surveys in other parts of Antarctica, including the virtually unknown Antarctic inner continental shelf,” said Australian Antarctic Division programme leader Tas van Ommen.
Will we end up in a Waterworld like a bad Kevin Costner movie? (I actually enjoyed that movie until he was afraid of a weird Dennis Hopper). However; is that our future of the polar caps melt?
I have a solution! Right now it’s isn’t feasible. However; Billionaires like Richard Branson may be laying the groundwork for our future salvation! Let’s face it, the polar caps melting will not affect us or our children or our children’s children but eventually our ancestors will be in trouble. The solution I foresee is to take the melted water from the caps into space and dump it into the atmosphere of Mars. Maybe that will make Mars inhabitable somehow.

Awesome awesome awesome!
Apple cinnamon pancakes, corned beef hash, Belgian waffle with French vanilla ice cream and oatmeal with fresh bananas! Everything was amazing!!

They even make homemade pies!
At least for breakfast this place is the best place I have gone to in a long time!
How to setup.
Yet another new flavor from the creative geniuses at Monster Energy! This flavor, Ultra Citron is refreshing and tastes different from the rest of the ultra series. I wish monster would research a healthier version, while still keeping it low carb.
The Pea soup was good, the steamed dumplings were good although they were only 2 pieces. The soup: Tom Ka Gai was amazing! It was perfect the way it should be!
The Massaman Curry was the best I have ever tasted and I don’t take that lightly! Previously; Tommy Cheng’s in Wayne NJ was the best and Tuk Tuk was slightly better the way they layered the sweet and spicy taste with chili, curry and cilantro was amazing!
Check this place out!
