Snowfall across the great white continent of Antarctica is increasing, according to a study released this week by an international team led by the British Antarctic Survey.
The team analyzed 79 ice cores from across Antarctica that provide detailed information on how much snow has fallen over hundreds of years, and it found a 10% increase in snowfall over the past two centuries.
This contradicts studies that found that Antarctic snowfall has remained largely constant over the past several decades to centuries. But those studies analyzed only a few ice cores, whereas this comprehensive look at the continent gives a much more thorough view of how weather patterns have changed the polar weather.
"The snowfall increase is driven by changing circulation patterns, drawing warm moist air from the mid-latitudes," said lead study author Liz Thomas, an ice scientist with the British Antarctic Survey.

Global warming causes cold weather.
I’ve heard that Antarctica is technically a desert, as it gets very little precipitation. While weather is extremely cold, they don’t get too many snowstorms.
some real scientists doing science for a change? no computer jockeys making up models?
that must have been very hard and dangerous work collecting all those cores. kudos to them all.
Believe it or not...that is what the underlying study concluded.
No, they attribute it to global warming.
It snowed in Rochester NY today. Trump fixed GW in less than 18 months in office!
It appears to here in Western NY.,woke up with a fresh 1 1/2” this morning. Maybe pulling my sled in the barn will give mother nature a hint!!
So that is were Al Gore has been hiding
they can “attribute” all they want. that part isn’t science.
Of course! Along with Nazis and/or aliens in tunnels deep underneath the ice. Yes, there are kooks who believe this.
As a result of gloBull warming, no doubt.🐂💨💩
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a giant nuclear furnace that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Oh No! Then there will be more snow to melt and then the floods will be worse.
79 ice cores become ‘a few’ when they don’t find the evidence they were hoping to find to bop mankind over the head with
Antarctica is a huge continent. It has some areas that are effectively deserts. The Dry Valleys certainly are. Others get significant snowfall.
It was snowing at 2:30pm in Rochester today. A mere 6 hours ago.
Still in the 30’s and going to be for the foreseeable future.
Penguins hardest hit.
