G-POD monitoring an Ice Shelf in danger
2008-12-12

Wilkins Ice Shelf from 26 November to 11 DecemberThe Wilkins Ice Shelf, a broad plate of floating ice off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, has undergone many changes in 2008. Due to the warming in the Antarctic spring (late November), newly formed rifts were discovered that scientists predict could lead to the opening of the ice bridge that connects the ice shelf to two islands, Charcot and Latady.

If the ice bridge were to open, it could put the entire ice shelf at risk of disintegrating.

ESA’s Envisat acquires images of the ice shelf daily with its Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) instrument. These images are processed by G-Pod and updated automatically on the Wilkins 'Webcam' from Space web page and placed in an animation to allow visitors to spot changes between acquisitions.
