Antarctic Ice Shelf Collapse Possibly Triggered by Ocean Waves, Scripps-led Study Finds

There are 80 comments on the scrippsnews.ucsd.edu story from Feb 13, 2010, titled Antarctic Ice Shelf Collapse Possibly Triggered by Ocean Waves, Scripps-led Study Finds. In it, scrippsnews.ucsd.edu reports that:

Depicting a cause-and-effect scenario that spans thousands of miles, a scientist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego and his collaborators discovered that ocean waves originating along the Pacific coasts of North and South America impact Antarctic ice shelves and could play a role in their catastrophic collapse.

Peter Bromirski of Scripps Oceanography is the lead scientist in a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters that describes how storms over the North Pacific Ocean may be transferring enough wave energy to destabilize Antarctic ice shelves.

According to Bromirski, storm-driven ocean swells travel across the Pacific Ocean and break along the coastlines of North and South America, where they are transformed into very long-period ocean waves called "infragravity waves" that travel vast distances to Antarctica. The study found that each of the Wilkins Ice Shelf breakup events in 2008 coincided with the estimated arrival of infragravity waves.

Maybe, your screw-fiend(ha ha ha),'large lying language' will take you to a kkk(ALWAYS SMALL LETTERS) cross-burning, etc. I'm sure you'll be able to sew a hood that'll fit your head. If its a bit tight, the fetid feces on your face will let it slip on.

And you think topix doesn’t know what you publish? Attacks on me won't delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts. Do contact topix to satisfy your accusations of the reprint BS your posting of what I said. You are a dumbASSumption of your---self again.
