What are robots learning from studying the "Doomsday Glacier" in Antarctica?
Scientists in west Antarctica, close to the largest glacier in the world, captured the world's first seafloor image.
Scientists from the United States, according to Dr. Alastair Graham, an associate professor of geological oceanography at the University of South Florida
To retrieve data, the United Kingdom and Sweden dispatched underwater robots to the bottom close to the Thwaites Glacier.
Graham told USA TODAY in a statement that "We have essentially found that Thwaites has a higher speed limit than we had anticipated.
The main reason for concern is the size of the Thwaites Glacier, sometimes referred to as the "Doomsday Glacier."
We must focus attention on it because "it locks up so much sea level in just one glacier system," Graham continued.
