We know that Antarctica has been changing in an unprecedented way, losing more ice than ever. However, a NASA-led study based on satellite imagery has found that the ice continent has lost more ice than previous estimates. The study found that the continent has lost 12 trillion tons of ice since 1997. It raises concerns about how climate change is weakening Antarctica's ice shelves.
