April 14, 1912. A huge glacier was moving in the Atlantic Ocean. Titanic, the most famous ship of the time, collided with that glacier and sank.

“Climate scientists believe that this glacier was formed in 1910 or 1911 in the Jacobshan Glacier on the west coast of Greenland. There are many such glaciers moving in the sea-ocean. Keeping track of these glaciers is a very difficult task for scientists. Again, the glaciers are melting rapidly due to various reasons including climate change. Glaciers The issue of melting is also difficult to understand with the naked eye. Scientists are using artificial intelligence (AI) to solve this problem. It is a matter of time to identify and review the type of glacier melting in the UK It is also very important to measure it. A lot of information is lost due to the lack of observations. Satellite images are used to detect the melting of giant glaciers Using artificial intelligence to do this. Conventional glacier detection methods are a bit slow. On the other hand, it takes several minutes to get the data from satellite images. As a result, AI is analyzing data in less than 0.01 seconds, which is 10,000 times faster than humans. This year, the British Antarctic Survey is afraid that the huge ice cover covering Antarctica will decrease. This melting ice will act as the villain in global sea level rise in the coming decades. Last year one of the largest glaciers ‘A69A’ melted.

This glacier was more than 100 miles long and 30 miles wide. After breaking off from the Antarctic and floating in the ocean for five years, the glacier melted in the South Atlantic Ocean. The role of this glacier in the local ecosystem will be seen for the next few years, scientists said. It is not yet clear whether this change will have a positive or negative impact on the marine food chain. Scientists have used satellite images to monitor the movement and contraction of isolated glaciers.
