UCI and JPL researchers discover huge and growing hole beneath West Antarctic glacier

A study by scientists from UCI and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has revealed a gigantic cavity on the underside of Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica. The hole is reportedly two-thirds the area of Manhattan, about 1,000 feet tall and expanding. The findings were published today in Science Advances. The researchers expected to find gaps between […]

UCI/JPL: Antarctica losing six times more ice mass annually now than 40 years ago

Climate change-induced melting will raise global sea levels for decades to come

2 UCI studies ranked among the 10 most popular climate research papers of 2018

Carbon Brief, a website devoted to the analysis of energy policy and climate change science, has published a list of the 10 climate research papers in 2018 that received the most global media attention, and two originated at UCI. The rankings are based on scores tabulated by Altmetric, which tracks and measures exposure of academic […]

Glaciers in East Antarctica also ‘imperiled’ by climate change, UCI researchers find

Usually seen as less vulnerable, they carry the potential to add 16 feet to global sea level

Ice loss in Antarctica is increasingly contributing to global sea level rise
