Mass balance of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet
Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Increase in mass loss by the West Antarctic ice sheet. The mass loss has been steadily increasing since the 1970s as a result of accelerations in glacier flow; snowfall has not changed significantly in Antarctica over the past 50 years.
