The data NASA researchers used in the study came from a new generation of ice-penetrating radar used in NASA's Operation IceBridge airborne campaign. All the data was then processed using a technique called radar interferometry to show how the ground below the surface is moving between images. "As more heat and water get under the glacier, it melts faster", said Pietro Milillo of JPL. The growing cavity is the red mass at the center.
About the size of Florida, Thwaites Glacier is now responsible for approximately 4 percent of global sea level rise.
The collapse of the Thwaites Glacier would cause an increase of global sea level of between one and two metres, with the potential for more than twice that from the entire West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
"We are discovering different mechanisms of retreat", Milillo said. In this region, as the tide rises and falls, the grounding line retreats and advances across a zone of about three to five kilometers.
The glacier is retreating in the face of the warming ocean and is thought to be unstable because its interior lies more than two kilometres below sea level while, at the coast, the bottom of the glacier is quite shallow. The glacier has been coming unstuck from a ridge in the bedrock at a steady rate of about 0.4 to 0.5 miles (0.6 to 0.8 kilometers) a year since 1992.
Thwaites Glacier, curiously, isn't melting in a uniform way. The Thwaites Glacier melting could also lead to nearby glaciers melting, which could lift sea levels around the world an additional eight feet.
Despite this high rate of retreat, melt rates are still higher on the western side, where the void is located. Hopefully, the upcoming global collaboration will help researchers piece together the different systems at work under and around the glacier, the researchers said.
