Researchers say ice shelves in the Canadian Arctic are breaking up and changing at an unexpectedly fast rate.
They say the region lost almost half its ice shelf extent in the last six years. This summer alone saw the Serson ice shelf almost completely disappear and the Ward Hunt shelf split in half. The ice loss equals about three billion tonnes, or about 500 times the mass of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
