Researchers ran simulations to understand the 1000km retreat of the Ross Ice Shelf during the past 20,000 years.Researchers ran simulations to understand the 1000km retreat of the Ross Ice Shelf during the past 20,000 years.

New research shows that ocean and air temperatures both contributed to the melting of Antarctica's Ross Ice Shelf in the past, but melting from below by a warming ocean became more important over time.New research shows that ocean and air temperatures both contributed to the melting of Antarctica's Ross Ice Shelf in the past, but melting from below by a warming ocean became more important over time.

““[West Antarctic Ice Sheet] melting will affect everyone,” says Steig. “The effects will be global, because sea level will rise globally.” West Antarctica is melting—and human-caused #climatechange is to blame #wais #sealevelrise https://t.co/Clr6nDeNtb”
