In 2002, the Larsen B ice shelf in Antartica collapsed. According to new research, Larsen B began collapsing as early as the 1960s. The ice gradually gained speed until it eventually lost all structure. According to Hongxing Liu, a geographer and professor at the University of Cincinnati, temperatures began to rise since 1950 and this is what quickened the process. Liu states that scientist will use Larsen B as an example for future studies of the melting ice in Antartica.
