Antarctic Is Getting Bigger? A New NASA Study Explains

Nov 2, 2015: “A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers, according to NASA.”

“The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice, according to NASA.” …”The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away,” said Jay Zwally, a glaciologist with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and lead author of the study, which was published on Oct. 30 in the Journal of Glaciology. http://news.weathernationtv.com/2015/11/02/antarctic-actually-getting-bigger-new-nasa-study-explains/
