The "Doomsday Glacier" is More Vulnerable Than Previously Thought

  • The Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica, ominously nicknamed the "doomsday glacier," is melting rapidly in unexpected ways.
  • Satellite data shows the glacier's ice shelf, which previously acted as a protective barrier, is now receding at an alarming rate, exposing more ice to the warming ocean and accelerating the melting process.
  • The melting of Thwaites Glacier alone could raise global sea levels by up to 2 feet (0.6 meters), threatening coastal communities around the world.
