An antarctic glacier has a new name thanks to researchers at Leeds university.
They discovered 14 glaciers which are melting quickly - with one now being named Glasgow - after this year's COP 26 climate change conference.
The naming of the glacier was announced at the G20 summit in Rome, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying it was a 'stark reminder of what we are working to preserve'.
It was part of their study which discovered that - over 25 years - melted ice has added around 126 million Olympic swimming pools to the sea level.
The Glasgow Glacier is one of nine areas of fast flowing ice in the Getz basin to be named after locations of major climate treaties, conferences and reports, following a request by University of Leeds scientists including PhD Researcher Heather Selley, from Leeds' School of Earth and Environment.
Her study, published in February 2021, revealed that 315 gigatonnes of ice has been lost from the Getzregion over the last 25-years, adding 0.9 mm to global mean sea level – the equivalent of 126 million Olympic swimming pools of water.
