Loooook into the crystal ball, or in this case, your liquid crystal computer screen. Flowing ice waxes and wanes, as thinning glaciers retreat from Antarctica's Amundsen Sea. The Texas-sized region holds some of the fastest-changing ice sheets on the planet, and scientists are keen to predict their response to polar climate change.
A new video vividly illustrates a couple possible futures, from minimal effects to dramatic ice loss. If the ice streams flowing into the Amundsen Sea melt completely, global sea levels would rise 1 foot (30 centimeters), said a statement from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LLBL).
