Antarctic sea ice thicker than anticipated

Researchers have discovered that the sea ice surrounding the Antarctic is thicker than previous estimations. Using groundbreaking 3D mapping, scientists analysed an area of ice spanning 500,000 metres squared. In two expeditions led by scientists from the UK, USA, and Australia, the survey discovered that ice thickness averaged between 1.4m and...
