The Antarctic sea ice cover have continued to increase despite climate change effects. Nevertheless, Antarctic ice sheet is at risk due to climate change: it doesn't lose its mass because of surface melting, but by the calving of icebergs at the front of marine terminating glaciers or at the front of the ice shelves. But there's another additional threats to the future of Antarctica, that is the ocean-induced basal melting of the ice sheets, a process that could cause the fast disappearing of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The complete melting ice of West Antarctica would represent a global mean sea level rise of about six meters [...]

CMCC Foundation researcher A. Bombelli was recently elected as member of the ESA CO2 Monitoring Task Force. The group will collect information and data for two years in order to plan a satellite mission for anthropogenic CO2 assessment and monitoring. He was chosen as expert in the field of climate change and carbon cycle and as CMCC coordinator of GEO group. His work will be mainly focused on users' needs [...]
