Snow in Antarctica is melting six times faster than in the 1980s. This is revealed in a new study. Scientists used photographs, satellite measurements, and computer models from the top to ascertain how the snow was melting on Antarctica from 1979. They found that ice is melting very fast and climate change is the main reason for human factors.

According to the study, in Antarctica, ice is melting 278 billion tonnes of snow every year since 2009, while in the 1980s, 44 billion tonnes of ice was melting. The recent average rate of melting snow is 15 percent higher than last year. Eric Ridgetown, a scientist at the University of California, told that a major difference in the satellite-based study showed that 56 billion tonnes of snow were melting in Eastern Antarctica, which is still considered stable.
