... Or not, a piece of ice the size of Delaware is about to break away from the Antarctic ice shelf.

 

 

When it breaks away, the loss would be of nearly 2,000 square miles of ice, saythe researchers with Project MIDAS, a British government-funded collaboration based at Swansea and Aberystwyth universities in Wales. That’s larger than Rhode Island and almost as big as Delaware

 

 

If this happens, it could accelerate a further breakup of the ice shelf, essentially removing a massive cork of ice that keeps some of Antarctica’s glaciers from flowing into the ocean. The long term result, scientists project, could be to noticeably raise global sea levels by 10 centimeters, or almost four inches.
