Claim: Evidence of Antarctic glacier’s tipping point confirmed for first time

He added: “The possibility of Pine Island Glacier entering an unstable retreat has been raised before but this is the first time that this possibility is rigorously established and quantified.

Unexpected ice

But observations show that ice extent in the Arctic has shrunk faster than models predicted, and in the Antarctic it has been growing slightly. Researchers are looking much closer at…

Claim: Sea level rise from ice sheets track worst-case climate change scenario

Ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica whose melting rates are rapidly increasing have raised the global sea level by 1.8cm since the 1990s, and are matching the Intergovernmental Panel on…

Researcher 'has a problem' with attributing West Antarctic Ice Sheet 'collapse' to human activity

From NASA JPL and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, something that maybe journo-hacktivist Susanne Goldenberg should pay attention to before she writes another screed. Reports that a portion of the West Antarctic…

Flashback: "Irreversible Collapse" of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet – from 1999

Guest post by David Middleton A Geological Perspective on the “Irreversible Collapse” of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet It’s “old” news, as this publication from 1999 shows us.

Dueling press releases on ice melt – one says 'uncertainty is large' the other quantifies a number

Once again, it looks like claims of ‘consensus’ are overblown. In our previous news item we have this: …ice sheets are the largest potential source of future sea level rise…

New study: Antarctic and Greenland ice sheet melt may be natural event, no consensus on cause

Ice sheets are the largest potential source of future sea level rise – and they also possess the largest uncertainty over their future behaviour From the University of Bristol Continuous…

Good news: World’s biggest ice sheets likely more stable than previously believed – upsets previous estimates of melting and sea level

Researchers show that high ancient shorelines do not necessarily reflect ice sheet collapse millions of years ago From the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research: For decades, scientists have used ancient…

Uncertainty be damned, let's make ice and sea level projections anyway

Modeling sea level rise is an 'uneven' proposition

From the British Antarctic Survey New projections of ‘uneven’ global sea-level rise Reporting in the journal Geophysical Research Letters researchers have looked ahead to the year 2100 to show how…

Glacially modeled snow job

Antarctic weight loss seems to be in the eye of the beholder

ICESAT Data Shows Mass Gains of the Antarctic Ice Sheet Exceed Losses

The results of ICEsat measurements are in for Antarctica, and it seems those claims of ice mass loss in Antarctica have melted now that a continent wide tally has been…

NASA: Warm Ocean Currents Cause Majority of Ice Loss from Antarctica

Breaking news from NASA and the ICEsat team, that’s their headline, not mine. This really makes all the hype over the now discredited Steig et al. paper, which attempted to…

New paper: A high-resolution surface mass balance map of Antarctica shows "no significant trend in the 1979–2010 ice sheet"

Uh, oh. Another talking point bites the dust. Leif Svalgaard writes in to tell me of a significant new paper. While Gore, Hansen, Branson, and a gaggle of hangers on…

Antarctic ice – more accurate estimates

Guest post by Verity Jones @ Digging In The Clay Cracking ice shelves make headlines, but ice loss estimates that are revised downwards don’t.  While there is great hand wringing…

Why I'm not worried about Greenland's icecap right now

There’s some blogospheric carping about his statement in the JPL press release below regarding Greenland’s ice sheets:“… their cumulative loss could raise sea level by 15 centimeters (5.9 inches) by…

Antarctic ice models "not correct", sea level rise "complicated"

There’s some surprising reaction to the press release we covered on WUWT recently. Here’s some excerpts:
