Detachment of a giant iceberg from Antarctica have shown in the video
Geophysics from Ohio state University (USA) proved that Antarctica is falling apart from the inside. A video showing the degradation of the continent, in particular, the formation of a huge iceberg, available on the website of the University. Devoted to the study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
To such conclusions scientists have come, watching pine island, part of the ice shelf, bounding the West Antarctic shield, eroded subsurface warm waters. Geophysicists presented on the video noticeably, at the base of the glacier in 2013 formed the crack, reaching a length of 36 kilometers. In 2015, its spread led to the isolation of a huge ice — the formation of the iceberg.
Degradation of the glacier, scientists were able to track using space-based observations. Experts believe that the West Antarctic shield may collapse after 100 years, which will increase Global sea level by 10 meters and the inundation of coastal cities, particularly new York and Miami.
