Antarctic Melt

Images from NASA satellites reveal that the record-breaking heat across parts of Antarctica in early February caused an unprecedented melting of the ice cap.

Ice covering Eagle Island, off the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, shrank dramatically as temperatures at times became as warm as those in Los Angeles.

It was the third major melting event of the 2019-2020 southern summer. Scientists say such phenomena have become more and more frequent this century.
