Antarctica growing colder

Ice expanding

18 Apr 09 - "Ice is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap," says this article by Greg Roberts.

"Antarctica has 90 per cent of the Earth's ice and 80 per cent of its fresh water, The Australian reports.

      If Antarctica has 90 per cent of the Earth's ice, and if that ice is expanding,
      wouldn't that mean that 90 percent of the world's glaciers are growing?

"East Antarctica is four times the size of west Antarctica and parts of it are cooling," Roberts continues. "The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research report prepared for last week's meeting of Antarctic Treaty nations in Washington noted the South Pole had shown "significant cooling in recent decades".

"Ice core drilling in the fast ice off Australia's Davis Station in East Antarctica by the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Co-Operative Research Centre shows that last year, the ice had a maximum thickness of 1.89m, its densest in 10 years. The average thickness of the ice at Davis since the 1950s is 1.67m.

"A paper to be published soon by the British Antarctic Survey in the journal Geophysical Research Letters is expected to confirm that over the past 30 years, the area of sea ice around the continent has expanded."
