  • 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. 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. CAUSES OF RISING SEA LEVELS • Melted ice ( water ) flows into the ocean • Warm water temperatu res cause water to expand
  • 4. EFFECTS OF RISING SEA LEVELS • • • • • Destructive Erosion Flooding of Wetlands Contamination Lost Habitat for Fish, Birds and Plants Powerful Storms
  • 5. WARM SEA TEMPERATUR ES CAN CAUSE DISEASE
  • 6. Sensors drilled into the Pine Island Glacier to measure ocean temperature, salinity and movement of warm water currents
  • 7. We must reduce green house gases in order to reduce global warming and high ocean temperatures
