FactoidHeadline Understanding risk from the Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica  +
FactoidText "The Ross Ice Shelf, a part of the Antarct"The Ross Ice Shelf, a part of the Antarctic Ice Sheet that is floating on the ocean, measures several hundred meters thick and sits over 480,000 square kilometers, approximately the size of Spain. Its magnitude, and the fact that thinning of the ice shelf will speed up the flow of Antarctica’s ice sheets into the ocean, mean that it carries significant sea level rise potential if it were to melt. Melting ice shelves like the Ross could cause seas to rise by several feet over the next few centuries." - Excerpt from [https://blogs.ei.columbia.edu/2019/07/22/ross-ice-shelf-summer-melting/ The Earth Institute, Columbia University] The Earth Institute, Columbia University]  +
