Ice loss is accelerating and that’s helped raise the global sea level by about 8 millimeters

Antarctica is losing ice at an increasingly rapid pace. In just the last five years, the frozen continent has shed ice nearly three times faster on average than it did over the previous 20 years.

An international team of scientists has combined data from two dozen satellite surveys in the most comprehensive assessment of Antarctica’s ice sheet mass yet. The conclusion: The frozen continent lost an estimated 2,720 billion metric tons of ice from 1992 to 2017, and most of that loss occurred in recent years, particularly in West Antarctica. Before 2012, the continent shed ice at a rate of 76 billion tons each year on average, but from 2012 to 2017, the rate increased to 219 billion tons annually.

Combined, all that water raised the global sea level by an average of 7.6 millimeters, the researchers report in the June 14 Nature. About two-fifths of that rise occurred in the last five years, an increase in severity that is helping scientists understand how the ice sheet is responding to climate change.

What they probably aren't mentioning is the huge increase in volcanism in that region that is causing the melting. The ice is melting from below. The average Antarctic temperature over the ice sheet is 40 below zero. It isn't melting from above.

I found all that missing ice it's in my ex wife's veins.

Where did the ice go? What happened?
