LOS ANGELES, APRIL 26 (Xinhua) – The US National Aeronautics and Space Direction scientists (NASA) have developed a new model to understand the Antarctic ice sheet and the future of sea level in the future centuries.
"Unlike most of today's models, we introduced strong Earth processes such as rebounding under ice and a very close range of ocean-level ice sheets," said Eric Larour, NASA Jet Propulsion Laborator scientist. (JPL) and the first author of the research, published on Thursday in Science.
"We have studied these models much more resolutely than they were used normally, instead of just about 20 kilometers of radius around a mile," he added.
According to the study, scientists found that some of those solidary lands melted in the ice layer by 2250, resulting in the increase in sea levels. In other words, they are really diminishing.
According to the group, it's been a hundred years after the future, it means that the future of 2350 has stuck to the horizons that the ice layer would bring 29% less than the prevalence of sea level in the world.
"We learned that one of the main things that were under the ice inside the earth was to withdraw, the underlying rocks rise elastically," said Erik Ivins, co-author of the research. "When it comes to removing the weight, when you take off weight, it is similar. This process burns the ice layer and eventually melts."
According to the group, the progress of this study was to achieve solutions to the "speed bumps" and the Antarctic effects would determine the rise of the sea level to the planet as a whole.
The Antarctic ice sheet currently accounts for 20-25% of global sea level rise.
