Six giant glaciers from west Antarctica are melting away, according to NASA scientists.

They scientists have been studying the remote area, which is one of the coldest places on earth, for the last 40 years.

They suggest climate change, caused by people, is one of the factors behind the melting.

What’s the risk of a glacier melting?
Just one glacier in West Antarctica can be nearly as big as the UK.

As a result of the glaciers melting more water is flowing in to the ocean. The scientists involved in this project say that sea levels could rise 3m to 5m over the next one hundred years as a result of the melting.
