Continuous satellite monitoring of ice sheets needed to better predict sea-level rise

Continuous satellite monitoring of ice sheets needed to better predict sea-level rise
Bristol, UK (SPX) Jul 16, 2013 - The findings, published in Nature Geoscience, underscore the need for continuous satellite monitoring of the ice sheets to better identify and predict melting and the corresponding sea-level rise. The ice sheets covering Antarctica and Greenland contain about 99.5 per cent of the Earth's glacier ice which would raise global sea level by some 63m if it were to melt completely. The ice sheet ... morehttp://www.terradaily.com/reports/Continuous_satellite_monitoring_of_ice_sheets_needed_to_better_predict_sea_level_rise_999.html
