Record #191803:

Floating glaciers may have greater impact on sea-level rise / Anon.

Title: Floating glaciers may have greater impact on sea-level rise / Anon.
Date: 2010.
In: Sea Technology. (2010.), Vol. 51(8) (2010)
Abstract: Reports first detailed observation of transition from "grounded" to floating glaciers, as is currently taking place at Columbia Glacier (Alaskan tidewater glacier). Such glaciers were believed to be exclusively grounded and unable to float without disintegrating. However, Columbia Glacier unexpectedly developed floating extension in 2007 that has endured longer than researchers expected. Observation may improve prediction of iceberg production from glaciers and ice sheets and improve estimates of sea-level rise.
