London, Jan.15 (ANI): Researchers have warned that Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier(PIG) could now be in a state of irreversible retreat, making it an even more significant contributor to global sea level rise during the next two decades.
El Nino may be behind melting of Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier  Jan 3, 1:29 pm
Washington, January 3 (ANI): The floating ice shelf at the tip of Pine Island Glacier, one of the biggest routes for ice to flow from Antarctica into the sea, has been melting and thinning for the past four decades causing the glacier to speed up and discharge more ice, researchers say.

Warm ocean water main culprit behind melting ice shelf  Sep 13, 12:52 pm
Washington, Sept. 13 (ANI): Researchers have said that warm ocean water, and not warm air, is melting the Pine Island Glacier's floating ice shelf in Antarctica and could be blamed for increased melting of other ice shelves.
