The most critical point of the continent is southeast where at the same time active rates five glaciers thaw at once. One of them is Totten who is recognized as one of the world's largest. In case it completely thaws, global sea level can rise more than by three meters. According to data of scientists, since 2008 these five glaciers lost an ice layer which thickness is over 2.7 meters. At the same time in the east of the continent rates of loss of ice are much lower. And nevertheless, and in it, very stable region, changes began to be observed.
