100 Years of Accumulated Mass Change over Antarctica

Scientists have collected Ice core measurements across Antarctica for many years. Scientists at NASA/Goddard and the British Antarctic Survey have assembled over 50 of these ice core measurements and have analysized them to derive a map of the mass accumulation change throughout the 20th Century (1900-2000).
