• Ice expanding in much of Antarctica
• Eastern coast getting colder
• Western section remains a concern
ICE is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.
The results of ice-core drilling and sea ice monitoring indicate there is no large-scale melting of ice over most of Antarctica, although experts are concerned at ice losses on the continent’s western coast.
One thought on “Antarctic ice is growing, not melting away”
For a complete picture of what’s happening on Antarctica, satellite gravity measurements of the entire continent find that East Antarctica is in approximate rough balance while West Antarctica is losing ice. Eg – the net result is Antarctica is losing land ice.
