17 Incredible Places That May Disappear Soon
South Patagonian Ice Field, Chile
According to researchers at Cornell University in the U.S., the Southern Patagonian Ice Field has lost ice at twice the rate between 2000 and 2002 than it did between 1975 and 2000.
Between 2000 and 2012, the ice field rapidly lost volume at many of its outlet glaciers. The meltwater from the ice field contributes to the increasing sea level.
