Ice losses from Antarctica have tripled since 2012

NASA and the European Space Agency teamed up for the Ice Sheet Mass Balance Intercomparison Project to assess Antarctic ice loss and the impact on global sea level rise. They found that ice losses from Antarctica have tripled since 2012, increasing global sea levels by 0.12 inches (3 mm) in that timeframe alone.
