Propping up glaciers to avoid cataclysmic sea level rise
Thu, 20 Sep 2018 13:57:08 -0400

Propping up glaciers to avoid cataclysmic sea level riseAs global warming outpaces efforts to tame it, scientists have proposed building massive underwater structures to prevent an Antarctic glacier the size of Britain from sliding into the sea and lifting the world's oceans by several metres. The more modest of two engineering schemes -- which is still on the scale of a Panama or Suez Canal -- to shore up Thwaites Glacier would require the construction of Eiffel Tower-sized columns resting on the seabed to support the glacier's ocean-facing edge, or ice shelf. Option Two is a 100-metre tall underwater wall, or berm, running 80-100 kilometres (55-60 miles) beneath the ice shelf to block bottom-flowing warm water that erodes the glacier's underbelly, rendering it unstable.
