NASA finds Antarctic ice shelf a few years from disintegration 15.5.2015 DNA: Money
The last intact section of one of Antarctica's mammoth ice shelves is weakening fast and will likely disintegrate completely in the next few years, contributing further to rising sea levels, according to a NASA study released on Thursday. The research focused on a remnant of the so-called Larsen B Ice Shelf, which has existed for at least 10,000 years but partially collapsed in 2002. What is left covers about 625 square miles (1,600 square km), about half the size of Rhode Island. Antarctica has dozens of ice shelves - massive, glacier-fed floating platforms of ice that hang over the sea at the edge of the continent's coast line. The largest is roughly the size of France. Larsen B is located in the Antarctic Peninsula, which extends toward the southern tip of South America and is one of two principal areas of the continent where scientists have documented the thining of such ice formations. "This study of the Antarctic Peninsula glaciers provides insights about how ice shelves farther south, which hold ...

The Water Book by Alok Jha review – this remarkable substance 14.5.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Water is everywhere, from the vast glaciers of Mars to the cells in our own bodies. And yet it remains a mystery • Read an extract The Chinese symbol for “political order” is made from the characters for river and dyke. The greatest cities are on rivers or have harbours. Ships create empires. Water is intrinsically linked with being human. We are almost entirely made of it: a human foetus is 95% water; the water content of an adult liver is 73%; that of the nervous system’s tissues is 84%. Our planet is seven-tenths water; until recently, scientists thought that water was a fundamental condition for life (though this is now seen as “chemical parochialism”). H2O is the only chemical formula that has entered everyday speech. We take water for granted, by thinking it ordinary, but we still don’t understand it. “Of all known liquids,” wrote the great water chemist Felix Franks, “water is probably the most studied and least ...
