Satellites have seen a sudden dramatic change in the behaviour of glaciers on the Antarctica Peninsula, according to a Bristol University-led study.

The ice streams were broadly stable up until 2009, since when they have been losing on the order of 56 billion tonnes of ice a year to the ocean.

Warm waters from the deep sea may be driving the changes, the UK-based team says.

The details of the satellite research are published in Science Magazine.

Better start divesting in my property shares in London and the lower Thames valley then. The Thames barrier won't cope for much longer!

If only!! Very Happy
