If global warming caused less ice in West Antarctica, how did it cause more ice in Eastern Antarctica?
Upcoming Research Will Buck The ‘Consensus’ And Show Antarctica Is Still Gaining Ice
Michael Bastasch | Contributor Is Antarctica melting or is it gaining ice? A recent paper claims Antarctica’s net ice loss has dramatically increased in recent years, but forthcoming research will challenge that claim. NASA glaciologist Jay Zwally first challenged the “consensus” on Antarctica in 2015 when he published a paper showing ice sheet growth in eastern Antarctica outweighed the losses in the western ice sheet.
