East Antarctica, which holds the potential of raising global sea level by almost 200 feet, has long been considered stable and unlikely to change in the future. But recent observations have hinted that East Antarctica is starting to wake. #TottenGlacier In this briefing, researchers will present new findings on how a group of glaciers in the vicinity of the massive Totten Glacier have been showing signs of acceleration over the last decade. The panelists will also discuss the causes driving these changes. Speakers: Alex Gardner, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, U.S.A.; Catherine Walker, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, U.S.A.

If all the ice in Antarctica were to melt, how much would global sea level rise? How quickly is this likely to happen?
