The rapid loss of Thwaites Glacier, one of Antarctica's most important glaciers, has raised concerns about global climate change.
According to scientists, Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica's Amundsen Sea is one of the fastest changing glaciers in the region.
Thwaites Glacier has always been remarkable for its sheer size, almost as big as the US state of Florida.
Thwaites Glacier, also known as the "Doomsday Glacier", has been melting at an alarming rate over the past few years.
This Thwaites Glacier has added 50 billion tons of ice to the sea over the years. But now this glacier is melting at an alarming rate.
Rapid melting is expected to cause a significant rise in global sea levels, which could submerge many coastal areas.
According to scientists, the Thwaites alone could raise sea levels by about 10 feet, a giant leap in sea level rise.
