Supersymmetric world from a conservative viewpoint
It's odd that no one thought to ask Al Gore the question "when did the glacier start melting". I wonder why?It appears that the glacier started melting right after the end of the last mini-ice age. Strange :-)
Werna, I don't believe in volcanic hypothesis of Antarctic ice melting by the same way, like you. From your map it's evident, the glaciers are melting in contact with ocean predominantly. But the volcanic hypothesis can be used for explanation of isolated glaciers melting, like the Ilulissat one.http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/01/20/europe/climate.phpIt should be pointed out, from global warming perspective isn't relevant, whether the glaciers are melting with the increased speed, or just subliming (at higher altitudes) - the origin is supposedly the same in both cases: unbalanced heat flux equilibrium.
