Under 4 Degree Celsius Scenario, over 34% of Antarctic Sea Ice Would Melt

If global temperatures reach 4C above pre-industrial levels, researchers from the University of Reading say over 1/3rd of the floating ice surrounding Antarctica may collapse and releasing “unimaginable amounts” of water into the sea. Limiting the temperature rise to 2C could halve the area at risk and avoid a drastic rise in sea levels, according to findings published in the journal, Geophysical Research Letters
