Washington DC: AAAS, 2004. 1st Edition. FIST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of a work of significance that employed aircraft and satellite measurements to show that the West Antarctica glacier thinning has accelerated since the 1990s. This work confirmed “that when the ocean eats at one end of a glacier, it can draw far distant ice toward the sea, with potentially dangerous consequences” (Kerr, Bit of Antarctica Slides to the Sea, Science Insider, September 23, 2004).
"’It's a very impressive piece of work,’" says glaciologist Richard Alley of Pennsylvania State University, University Park. "Too many different lines of evidence are agreeing now" for them to be wrong about the thinning or the speedup of the past 10 to 15 years” (ibid). Item #1467
