When sea levels rise to dangerous levels

According to the researchers’ statement, which they made at a conference of the American Geophysical Society, the East Ice Shelf, which rests in part on a third of the Doomsday Glacier – also called the Thwaites Glacier – will break off and slide into the water. From this, the ocean level will rise by 25%. At the same time, scientists emphasized that the shelf part is getting weaker and weaker at the bottom of shallow water.

Scientists also warned that cracks spread from the land part of the glacier to the center of its shelf part at a speed of 2 kilometers per year. And when these cracks intersect with those at the bottom of the bottom, the glacier will collapse in 5 years, very quickly.
