Volcano under ice sheet suggests thickening of West Antarctic ice is short-term

University of Washington provides information on Antarctic ice!
GREAT 3-D imaging!! A region of West Antarctica is behaving differently from most of the continent’s ice: A large patch of ice there is thickening, unlike other parts of West Antarctica that are losing ice. Whether this thickening trend will continue affects the overall amount that melting or collapsing glaciers could raise the level of the world’s oceans.

That is SUPER COOL!! I just pulled the URL into Smart Sparrow and it is totally functional as a gif. Great resource!
