Rapidly melting Antarctic ice could affect oceans ‘for centuries’: Reports

- Science - March 30, 2023

It was reported that rapidly melting Antarctic ice was dramatically slowing down the flow of water through the world’s oceans. It could have a disastrous effect on global climate, the marine food chain, and even the stability of ice shelves, new research says. The “overturning circulation” of the oceans, driven by the movement of denser water towards the sea floor, helps deliver heat, carbon, oxygen, and vital nutrients around the globe.
