antarctica

Rift Propagation and ice calving of Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica. Calving of ice took place between July 10th and 12th. AMHTDG Team was watching the event closely. Ice disintegration was of the order of ~ 6200 km2 out of ~ 50000 km2. The event presently will not raise the sea level, but the instability of the shelf and increased ice flow from Ice Sheet may altogether change the scenario.
