The researchers found under the ice of Antarctica mysterious teplansky layer.
Scientists have discovered new evidence that under the ice sheet of West Antarctica is teplansky layer. His age is estimated to be 50-110 million years.
A study conducted by NASA showed that the mysterious geothermal mantle plume beneath the Antarctic ice sheet warms, creating new rivers and lakes from the waters of the warming of glaciers.
Scientists hope that learning about this natural phenomenon, they can better calculate the anticipated rate of melting of ice on Land and the increase of the water level on the planet.
Note, a researcher from the University of Colorado Denver first proposed the presence of a mantle plume beneath Marie Reed 30 years ago.
And according to researcher Helen Seroussi from laboratory of jet movement NASA in Pasadena, California, she first sees that above the warm layer was present melted ice. “I thought it was crazy. I haven’t seen the same amount of heat and ice on top of it!, she said, when I first heard about this idea.
In fact, mantle plumes are narrow streams of hot rocks that spread like a thick layer under the earth’s surface. For the past 11 thousand years, these plumes are accelerating the melting of glaciers worldwide.
The increase in water level will noticeably increase the total number of natural disasters, including typhoons and storms, and will increase average temperatures.
