Pine Island Glacier In West Antarctica Is Melting From Inside Out

Now, a study accepted for publication in the journal Geophysical Research Letters has unearthed another worrying finding — the Pine Island Glacier, which is already known to be one of the fastest melting glaciers in Antarctica, is breaking apart from inside out.

The study, based on analysis of satellite images of the region, revealed that the rift that led to a 225-square-mile iceberg breaking off from the glacier in mid-2015 originated nearly two years earlier in the centre of the ice shelf.
