Scientists have discovered an anomaly under Antarctica’s famous “doomsday glacier” – too warm water,media reported. The glacier, called Thwaites, is one of the fastest melting glaciers in Antarctica and is known as the Doomsday Glacier, which scientists say meets the water at its intersection with the sea, which is 2 degrees Celsius warmer than normal.
“If these waters cause glaciers to melt in Antarctica, more people in the world will feel the sea level change, ” said new York University experts. “
The Thwaites glacier, which stores water the size of the entire UK, would rise by nearly a metre if it melted, a disaster for coastal countries and cities.
The New York University team says they have just recorded such “hot water” in the area around Thwaites, a fact rather than a guess that glaciers are likely to undergo an unstoppable melting process that has a significant impact on global sea levels.
