Scientists are debating the real reasons for global warming, which has caused a lot of change in landscapes all over the world. Earth has many types of natural terrain, which includes glaciers at both poles that aren’t inhabited by people. The ice shelves at the two poles are the least explored, but researchers have now discovered that the East Antarctic Ice Sheet is not as stable as previously thought. As a result, global warming could cause a drastic increase in sea level.

Scientists have discovered parts of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet which are susceptible to the warming of the oceans and atmosphere, which could result in an increase of sea levels around the world by 10 to 15 feet. That could be disastrous to many cities that lie along Earth’s coastlines.

More importantly, the ice sheet contains more water than any other ice sheet in the world. Before this discovery, scientists barely found any change in the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. Even though other frozen masses near the shelf were melting, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet was always sufficiently stable, as it wasn’t gaining or losing mass for a long time.
