Antarctic Glaciers Are Growing Unstable Above and Below Water

That study, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, concludes that understanding how the ice field ruptures as it moves across the bedrock is vital to understanding when this collapse might occur. In addition to identifying the weak points in the glacier, Lhermitte and colleagues created a computer model to predict how such cracking and buckling could affect other Antarctic glaciers in the future.

Lhermitte says the goal of this model was not to predict the exact date when Thwaites will collapse. That’s next to impossible right now, because there are too many other unknown factors to consider, such as the pace of climate change that is warming both the air and water temperature around the glaciers, as well as the movement of ocean currents around Antarctica. (A 2014 study published in the journal Science by University of Washington scientists used satellite data and numerical

When To Move On In An Unstable Job Market

CEO at Lensa, Inc. Passionate advocate for recruiting and human resources technology that puts people first.

In one sense, a job is like a marriage between an employee and a company: There’s a mutual give-and-take, and the relationship is hard work, but it can pay big rewards over the long term. However, the analogy has its limitations because there’s at least one way in which a job is nothing like wedlock: There is no “till death do us part.”

While there’s no “right time” to move on to new career challenges, it’s especially tricky to navigate an exit now. Even as people have gone back to work, the job market is unstable and will continue to be for the next few months.

If You Go, There May Be Trouble

Perhaps you’re thinking, “Why would anyone leave their job in this economy?” Yet it doesn’t take much imagination to
