  1. 1. Warm Water Under Antarctic Glacier Spurs Rapid Melting WARM WATER UNDER ANTARCTIC GLACIER SPURS RAPID MELTING Posted to LiveScience.com on September 12th, 2013 CHRISTOPHER HILL SCIE114-
  2. 2. According to Naval Post Graduate Students Warm water, under the Pine Island Glacier, is causing ice to melt at a rate of 2.4 inches per day
  3. 3. CAUSES OF RISING SEA LEVELS • Melted ice ( water ) flows into the ocean • Warm water temperatu res cause water to expand
  4. 4. EFFECTS OF RISING SEA LEVELS • • • • • Destructive Erosion Flooding of Wetlands Contamination Lost Habitat for Fish, Birds and Plants Powerful Storms
  5. 5. WARM SEA TEMPERATUR ES CAN CAUSE DISEASE
  6. 6. Sensors drilled into the Pine Island Glacier to measure ocean temperature, salinity and movement of warm water currents
  7. 7. We must reduce green house gases in order to reduce global warming and high ocean temperatures
