NASA allows to launch new maps; Signs appearing that Antartach glaciers think that; melting

NASA scientists have found signs that large glaciers in Eastern Antarctica are filtered away.

The eastern part of the mainland was considered to be more sustainable than the west.

But new maps of speed and ice rise have shown that a group of glaciers with a one-eighth cover of the Antarctic coast of the East have been in a position; ice loss for ten years.

The results allow fear of melting ice to reach sea levels rising around the world.

Ecologists have previously warned that the Totten glaciers, which were the fastest ever moving in East Antarctica, Reduction caused by water to warm up.

The large glacier holds enough water to raise the sea level about three meters.

"Totten is the largest glacier in Eastern Antarctica, so it will attract most of the research focus," said Catherine Walker, geologist at the Space Flight Center Goddard NASA in Maryland, USA, who presented the results of a meeting of the American Geo-American Union (AGU).

"But it appears that other nearby glaciers respond in a similar way to Totten," she said.

Researchers found that there were four glaciers to the west of Totten, in an area that looks at Vincennes Bay, has dropped in an upper surface with an average of almost three meters from 2008 – that year no change in measurement was increased.

On the east side of Totten, glaciers Wilkes Land coastline at their dip rate is partially doubled from around 2009, with the surface falling approximately 0.25 meters per annum.

Scientists say that the size of the ice is relatively small compared to glaciers in West Antarctica, but it indicates a dramatic and extensive change in the east.

"This change does not look randomly, it looks normal," said Alex Gardner, an expert by NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

"And a systematic nature influences the oceanic influence of its harbor that has been very strong in the West Antarctica.

"Now we may get clear links to the ocean that will affect Antarctica an Ear."
