Antarctic Glacier Collapse Could Surge Global Sea Levels

The Thwaites Ice sheet in West Antarctica

a tremendous glacial mass about the size of Florida,

is as of now in a period of quick retreat in a warming world

causing far and wide worry among researchers about how rapidly

it might disintegrate its large number of lots of

ice into the sea, raising worldwide ocean levels by as much as two feet.

The Thwaites Ice Rack, a drifting ice rack which supports

and controls the eastern piece of Thwaites Glacial mass,

could fall, another review shows. Assuming this ice rack implodes

the effect of its retreat could "depend on 65 centimeters (25 inches)
