Scientists have begun to study a 300-meter well in the Antarctic glacier

A team of scientists from New Zealand universities within the framework of the Aotearoa New Zealand Ross Ice Shelf program has begun to visually study a 300-meter well drilled in the giant Antarctic Ross Glacier the size of France.

Already according to the first research results, scientists suggested that the water under the glacier became warmer compared to previous measurements made in the 70s. This is a very alarming signal, since the abnormal melting of polar glaciers could lead to a catastrophic rise in the level of the World Ocean.

It is not yet known exactly how actively the process of melting of the Ross Glacier is going on, but even the revealed minor changes require the closest attention.
