More accurate maps of bed topography reveal physical processes controlling retreat
UCI-created high-resolution charts will inform future ice and sea level forecasts
Nine times more ice is melting annually due to warmer temperatures
Data are dramatically increasing knowledge of how the ocean is melting the ice sheet
Channels give warm ocean water access to their undersides, speeding glacier retreat

New seafloor mapping techniques help scientists identify high-risk areas
Breakup of Zachariae Isstrom could substantially raise global sea levels
Greenland’s fjords are far deeper than previously thought, and glaciers will melt faster, researchers find
West Greenland’s fjords are vastly deeper than rudimentary models have shown, allowing intruding ocean water to badly undercut glacier faces, which will raise sea levels around the world much faster than previously estimated, a UCI-led research team has found.
A comprehensive, 21-year analysis of the fastest-melting region of Antarctica has found that the melt rate of glaciers there has tripled during the last decade.
