Antarctica, ბრანტის Shelf glacier ნაპრალები იზრდება და რეგიონს მალე უზარმაზარი აისბერგი მოსწყდება.
yet known, What will happen to this zone or the scientific infrastructure, where the scientists. research stations were established in the 1950s.
Brandt shelf glacier is located on the ground kotsis, uedelis Sea. As there pointing cracks arising, Soon the giant glacier iceberg mostsqdeba, New York City is about twice as large. One crack gap is called Halloween, because it's the first time 2016 appeared at the end of October.
Halloween gap and future Antarctic iceberg larger part of the story and sad.
1956 in, Brandt Shelf glacier research station established Britain hull. The goal was to study the Earth's atmosphere and really, 1985 in, Scientists have discovered the ozone hole in the hull of the. Since then, Place station several times changed, because ice stacks him a serious threat to the.
Total end, Place station 2017 changed in, as it has grown tremendously in the cracks in the ice, He was placed on an.
However,, gap 1 more and more rapidly growing and hull research station is quite serious threat to the future. about 35 This year the gap was stable, But I recently astsrapda and year 4 km increases. Unknown, Where to meet the gap 1 and the gap between Halloween, But when this happens, Avoid trigger a whole shelf of ice.
This plays an important role in the drama of the Arctic ice convexity of McDonald. They then formed, When the ice formations on rocky flowing, where the basement rocks are lifted and the lower part of the glacier cover interacts. the foundation rocks of ice flow and prevents the formation of cracks, upskrulebsa and pressure waves. All these factors interfere with the stability of the ice shelf.
NASA geologist, Joe said McGregor, Brandt ice shelf in the near future depends on, where harmony existing cracks. If this McDonald trigger the ice at the top (South) will be part of the, Ice shelf destabilization is inevitable.
This will be the largest iceberg, Ever mostsqvetia Brandt Shelf Glacier, Anyway after, we are in the process of paying attention. Since scientists 1915 Since observing. Although, Shelf for glaciers melting is not a foreign event, But such a level of change in the region for quite uchvuloa.
NASA glaciologist, Chris Schuman said, It is not known precisely, What is conditioned cover glacial melting and recovery periods.
The size of the tip depends on, where they will meet each other cracks, But it's about 1700 square kilometers. Antarctic standards for the size of this giant is not, But as mentioned above, Iceberg will be the largest ice shelf in the Brandt. Scientists fear, This event that the cover will cause instability.
growth cracks can be seen in the following two photos. Both of them are taken from the satellite is in the same region, 33-years apart. The photo was taken at the top 1986 January, even lower 2019 January.
