"The ice sheet has been retreating for the last few thousand years, but we think the end of this retreat has come," said Dr Joughin. "But I hesitate to say that we can stop worrying about it." This latest study covers a limited area of land and the scientists point out that ice sheets in other regions, such as the Pine Island Glacier and the Thwaites Glacier, are thinning. Dr Duncan Whingam, a glaciologist at University College London, said: "Its harder than ever to predict how this area of Antarctica is going to evolve."
