Catastrophic thawing of a glacier was shown from the satellite


The glacier daily loses Vavilov's Dome on 30 centimeters of an ice cover and moves to the sea. Rapid thawing of a glacier Vavilov's Dome was shown on video from the DigitalGlobe satellite. Daily the glacier loses 30 centimeters of an ice cover. Scientists couldn't expect that process to such an extent will accelerate. Writes EurekAlert about it. Thawing of a glacier Vavilov's Dome has been noticed in 2010. Then the movement of his top part towards the sea has been recorded. However now these processes have repeatedly accelerated, and the ice block aspires to the sea with a speed of 5-10 meters a day. The reasons see in mutual friction of two parts of a glacier that provokes emergence of increasing number of liquid and does all process irreversible. According to the estimates of scientists, in a year the glacier loses 4,5 billion cubic meters of ice. It can significantly correct forecasts concerning rates of increase in the World Ocean. Earlier it was reported that NASA has published the colourful picture of the glacier of Colombia located on Alaska. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
