Now, researchers have found out that the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, which was considered a very unaffected-by-climate-change ice mass
might not be as stable as it looks.
Once you have that combination of ocean heat and atmospheric heat -- which are related -- that's when the ice sheet could really experience dramatic ice mass
He further added, a major part of the snow and ice mass
of the HKH region in Pakistan is concentrated in the watersheds of the Indus basin.

Austria's glaciers are not only losing in length -- that is, how far they extend down the valley -- they are also becoming thinner, said Anton Neureiter, a glaciologist with Austria's central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) who monitors ice mass
on 12 glaciers both north and south of the main crest of the Alps.
Spanning more than 650,000 square miles, the Greenland Ice Sheet is the second-largest ice mass
in the world, behind only the Antarctic Ice Sheet.
To counteract the ice-loss, glaciologists and the Swiss environment ministry have come up with a novel strategy: Cover the ice mass
with white blankets that reflect heat and light.
The ice number N1 at the end of the vortex phase is determined by the soot index and a survival factor based on the ice mass
He reached another post reading "1951", a marker for the edge of Alaska's Exit Glacier that year, and gazed up toward where the rock-rutted ice mass
has since receded, a quarter mile away.
This pair of platforms senses the Earth's gravity field and can, in a coarse way, calculate how much ice mass
has been lost from a particular region of the continent.
As it turns out, there was no such entity--only the great ice mass
beyond the Antarctic circle, which did in fact, secretly house the yearned for land mass, but at a lower degree of latitude than envisaged.
Renwick said the growth relates to sea ice in Antarctica, not the glacial ice mass
on the continent, which was the subject of recent studies finding that the loss of ice in the Western Antarctic may be unstoppable.
