I wonder how many decades ago the U.S. naval submarine fleet figured this out.

Twice now i've opened up an article link and got confused when the story isn't there. Thanks for pointing out why.

Now we all know that that there is a landmass underneath Antarctica so you can't send a submarine underneath the majority of the Antarctic ice sheet. Right?

Can that be the very long "Republican Tunnel to Reality"?
 
2014-08-23 12:42:16 PM  
Big rivers under the ice sheet? Surprise, surprise, surprise. We already know about networks of lakes and rivers underneath the ice elsewhere in Antarctica so it make sense that they continue under the ice sheets that float as well as under the solidly grounded ice caps.

Probably these channels are the fault lines where the ice sheet is thinner and weaker. Since the melt water flows in channels rather than thin sheets, the ice sheets may be much more vulnerable to breaking off as warming continues and movement speeds up.

On the other hand, channels under grounded ice might mean it will be slower to melt and slide off where the ice is resting on what is essentially sea bed, below current sea level. The predictive results of this new information should be interesting, although you can't say whether it is good news or bad news, or both, just yet.

As a general rule, as the ice sheets go, so goes the ice dammed up in glaciers behind them.

No, that goes through the Secret Reptilian Elite's Mars colonies to Zeta Reticuli and back.

They knew a great deal about going under the ice at that time and they were even showing it off for the movie crews.  I'm not sure if they had been under the southern ice sheet then.

Yes, but we also know the article is about the ice shelf - Right?
 
2014-08-23 05:06:34 PM  
But I thought the experts knew everything:

That also suggests water underneath ice sheets pours out into the ocean in focused channels, sort of like under-ice rivers. Scientists previously thought overland meltwater flowed underneath ice sheets in thin, continuous layers.
