Glaciers Melting Faster Than Previously Thought

icebergA two year study of both the Artic and Antartic indicated that ice in both areas is melting much faster than previously thought.  Study results are particularly troubling in the case of the Antartic.  Researchers had thought that melting there was limited to the Antartic Peninsula, but research indicates that it is much more widespread.  What is known as west Antartica is in fact experiencing significant melting.  These results have led some researchers to worry about the state of mostly unexplored east Antartica.  For more information, see the Associated Press articles here and here.
