WONDERFUL!!! I wonder just how many millions/billions we are going to waste on THIS boon-doggle.
By the way, does anyone know of a good model of the Antarctic Ice Sheet? I'm thinking along the lines of an FEA - I'm interested in just how long it will be before the thing (all 7 million cubic miles of it) slips into the circum-polar ocean. When it does (if it does, although I'm not at all sanguine), we can expect something over a 200-foot rise in sea-level. That ought to take out a lot of the blow-hards running around Washington, Texas, etc...
If we DON'T have a model, I think it is about time that we developed one. The speed with which that ice shelf broke up (less than 6 weeks) leads me to suspect that there is a whole lot we don't know about ice sheets, their structure, and their movement.
