Rapid ice shelf disintegration in Antarctic
Rapid ice shelf disintegration in Antarctic
For ten years ESA's Envisat satellite observed the rapid retreat of one of Antarctica's ice shelves due to climate warming. Helmut Rott, Professor at the Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics, follows this development since the start of the mission. One of the satellite's first observations following its launch on 1 March 2002 was the break-up of a main section of the Larsen B ice shelf in Antarctica - when 3200 sq km of ice disintegrated within a few days due to mechanical instabilities of the ice masses triggered by climate warming.
