If the sea will be further curtailed, after 50 years could disappear. ”

Results of the study were obtained on the basis of the joint work of experts from the British National Center for Antarctic Studies (BAS), University of Aberdeen, Exeter and York. British polar explorers have made with the help of radar ice-map to little known part of the mainland adjacent to the Weddell Sea (West Antarctica) and found that there is hidden pool size of a small country in Europe (an area of about 20,000 square kilometers). Its depth in some places up to two kilometers.

University of Colorado at Boulder reported that, like the melting snow, sliding from the rooftops, the icy shell of Greenland may move closer to the ocean, driven by the water that collects in lakes directly on the surface of the ice.
If this happens, the consequences for the inhabitants of coastal areas will be staggering, because such a move sure to cause a rise in water level in the ocean.
