She discovered that the ice cover slightly exploded to 122 meters in some places, while thinning left unstable glaciers, according to scientists from the University of Leeds in England
. (breaking a piece of ice) reduces its mass faster than it can be replenished with snowfall, and thinning has spread to 24% of Western Antarctica since 1992.
The largest ice floods in the region, the Pine Island and the Thwaites Glaciers, lose ice at a rate of less than the time when measurements began.
The team of researchers from the British Center for Polar Observation and Modeling (CPOM), based at the University, used a 25-year observation satellite and climatic models to monitor the evolution of snow and ice in the area
