Earth’s ‘staggering’ loss of Ice sheets knows no return

A group of Scientists from London found vout a “staggering’ 28 Trillion tonnes of Ice which has been disappeared from Earth’s surface since 1994.

The sea level rose dramatically over the last decade as based on analysis of satellite, melting glaciers and ice sheets have been responsible for this. The sea level to rise by 3 meter as predicted by the reports of the committee.

The scenario predictions are the worst case till now outlined and emphasized by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as scientists have confirmed.

This research came after Ohio’s State University research on Greenland’s ice sheets have been declared. According to that reports, Greenland’s conditions have reached to that point from where no return is possible.

Scientists from Leeds and Edinburgh universities and University College London analyzed satellite surveys of glaciers, mountains, and ice sheets between 1994 and 2017.

They identified the impact of global warming and hence reviewed paper was published in the journal Cryosphere Discussions.

Reasons

  • According to the researchers, snowfall that replenishes the country’s glaciers each year can no longer keep up with the pace of ice melt.
  • There can be little doubt that the vast majority of Earth’s ice loss is a direct consequence of climate warming.
  • Major disruption to the biological health of Arctic and Antarctic waters and reducing the planet’s ability to reflect solar radiation back into space.
