While it’s no secret that the ice on Earth’s poles is melting, scientists are still learning about how rapidly these changes are happening.

.

Now a new study of water across the surface of Antarctica finds that the melting is occurring to a greater degree than previously thought.

.

This study tells us theres already a lot more melting going on than we thought, co-author Robin Bell told Columbia University’s Earth Institute last week in a press release about the study. When you turn up the temperature, its only going to increase.

.

Researchers from Columbias Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory conducted the study and published their findings in the journal Nature on Wednesday,

.

The scientists “found extensive drainages of meltwater” flowing in parts of Antarctica where they did not expect to find it, according to the Earth Institute’s press release.

.

Video provided by the Earth Institute, shows a 400-foot-wide waterfall draining a steady flow of turquoise water off the Nansen ice shelf and into the ocean.

.

The Nansen ice shelf, which is on the southern side of the continent, is a mammoth glacier that stretches about 30 miles long and 10 miles wide, according to Geographic Names and Information Systems.

.

This is not in the future  this is widespread now and has been for decades, glaciologist Jonathan Kingslake told the Earth Institute. I think most polar scientists have considered water moving across the surface of Antarctica to be extremely rare. But we found a lot of it, over very large areas.
