It is certainly retreating now at a rapid rate

Researchers at this camp overlooking Greenland’s Helheim glacier have some bad news.

This glacier has retreated more than 10 kilometers or so in the last decade or so, from that position far off and to my left to where you see it today.

It was here in 2018 that researchers captured this footage of large chunks of ice breaking away in a process called calving.

Scientists like New York University’s David Holland measured and observed climate change.

This summer Holland saw record-shattering heath and ice melt.

Large glaciers are retreating.

We can detect this with satellite, with effectively cameras in space, and we’re seeing a very large signal of melt coming from this one particular glacier out in West Antarctica called Thwaites.

NASA and the European Space Agency or ESA released the study in December showing the Greenland ice sheet rapidly melting, having lost nearly four trillion metric tons between 1992 and 2018.

Holland says a similar fate appears underway in Antarctica.

That glacier is holding back several other glaciers of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.

So all told,it is conceivable and not that it will happen but it could happen, that up to 3 meters of global sea level could be unleashed unto us.

Cities like Alexandria Egypt take countermeasures to slow crashing waves because of rising sea levels near ice shelves affect sea levels everywhere.

Warmer waters around retreating glaciers like the one in Antarctica expedite the process.

This glacier is perhaps unstable.

It is certainly retreating now at a rapid rate.

It has raised its stuff to the point of be, of now using physics, mathematics and observation.

It’s actually credible, plausible that this thing could cause a major change in sea level.

A study published April in the journal Nature showed glaciers worldwide annually lose 369 billion metric tons of snow and ice.

The Greenland ice sheet alone holds enough water to raise sea level by nearly seven and a half meters.
