Increase in volcanic eruptions at the end of the ice age caused by melting ice caps and glacial erosion02 Feb 2016
Researchers have found that glacial erosion and melting ice caps both played a key role in driving the observed global increase in volcanic activity at the end of the last ice age.
A new study finds that the Greenland Ice Sheet, which covers 1.7 million square kilometres and contains enough ice to raise sea levels worldwide by seven metres, is less stable and more sensitive to climate change than previously thought.
Study successfully reconstructed temperature from the deep sea to reveal how global ice volume has varied over the glacial-interglacial cycles of the past 1.5 million years.
