Zombie Ice will Raise Sea Level 10 Inch

Greenland's rapidly melting ice sheet will eventually raise global sea level by at least 10.6 inches more than twice as much as originally anticipated

That is as a result of what might be referred to as zombie ice.

Less snow is falling now, and thicker sections of ice are no longer being fed by parent glaciers.

Climate change is causing the destined ice to melt, which will unavoidably cause the seas to rise, according to research co-author William Colgan.

"Ice is dead. It will just melt and vanish off the ice sheet "Colgan stated in a conversation.

"Regardless of the climatic (emissions) scenario we choose at this time, this ice has been relegated to the ocean.

It is "more like one foot in the grave," according to the study's principal author, glaciologist Jason Box of the Greenland survey.
