Antarctica giant cracks in the glacier! A concern of sea water rising 2 feet

Huge Cavity in Antarctic Glacier Signals Rapid Decay

As far as the place is located in our Kolkata district, about one-third of its three-part area is a gigantic glacier in Antarctica. The depth of the crack is more than a thousand feet. In such a huge glacier in Antarctica so close to the ground, it has not been able to detect such a big crack before. As far as West Bengal is concerned, the glacier has more than double its area.

In the giant glacier, the crack is so close to the ground that the anxiety of the scientists, the water of the ocean can penetrate through it and swallow the whole glacier. If the ice that is in the glacier melts completely, then the ocean water level will rise at least 2 feet or 65 centimetres.

How to find the crack?

NASA's 'Icebridge' satellites placed in the Earth's orbital radar sent an image, the cracks of the Antarctic glacier so deep detected The same image has sent the orbital radar in Germany and Italy. The research paper has been published in the International Science-Journal 'Science Advance'. January 29th Whose title - 'Heterogeneous retreat and ice melt of Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica'. Colonel University Professor Sumon Bandyopadhyay also has two key types of research at the international researcher with Professor Eric Rignot of the University of California, Professor Pietro Melillo and Arvin.

West Antarctica whither? Thwaites glacier is here

Anxiety scientists

In response to the queries sent, Suman E-Mail said, "Now we must keep a close eye on the giant glacier thwaites Glacier of West Antarctica to accurately measure how quickly the ocean water level can rise due to climate change rapidly for warming."

How much is the Thwaites glacier melted?

Sumon and original researcher Eric Rignot said, "The depth of the crack is more than 1 thousand feet or 300 meters in seawater. Not only that, glaciers do not fall on the ground (bedrock) on the bottom of the glacier to the side of the glacier. But due to the widespread change in Antarctic climate for warming, we thought that there would be a gap between the top of the ground and the bottom of the glacier. We were surprised to see the pictures taken on the radar in 'Isabrija'. I could not think, the crack would be so big and so deep. We are really concerned because the 'radar radar' has said, the giant glaciers are melting rapidly, Thayet's glacier. In the last three years, 1400 million tonnes of ice has melted completely. "

Antarctic more glaciers can dissolve that crack!

According to M. Ravichandran, the leader of Pune's National Center for Antarctic and Ocean Research (NCAOR), one of the world's most prominent Antarctic and glacier experts, "The big cracks below a vast glacier in places like Antarctica are of course very worrisome. Because that crack will play a very important role in the melting of the glacier. The fracture caused by melting ice was born. And it's very close to the underground. As a result, a lot of heat energy will be born in the crack. It will start melting the other levels of the glacier too quickly. And through the crack, it is entered into the outer ocean water. It will also melt the glacier faster. "

More than two or three glaciers in the ocean will be 8 feet deep!

As the Thwaites Glacier ice melts across more than twice the area of West Bengal, the sea water level has already started rising above the worries. As the sea water level for warming has increased in the last decade, nearly 4 per cent of it has already emerged due to the melting of the Thwaites glacier ice.

Ravichandran says, "The reason for further worry is that if the ocean of water is entered by the crack, then if it melts two more glaciers around Thwaites, the ocean's water level will rise further by 8 feet."

An international research team will run the field study in the glacier next year to conduct more field studies. Whose name is 'International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration'.
