A recent ice core from James Ross Island shows that warming in this region began around 600 years ago and then accelerated over the last century.

Following the common practice of the w: IPCC, the zero on this figure is the mean temperature from 1961-1990. Rohde from publicly available data and is incorporated into the Global Warming Art project. Air temperatures increased by ~2.5°C from 1950-2000. 12 glaciers around the Antarctic Peninsula showed near-frontal surface lowering since the 1960s, with higher rates of thinning for glaciers on the north-western Antarctic Peninsula. Surface lowering ceases at about 400m in altitude across all the glaciers, which may be due to increased high-altitude accumulation. calculate that the Antarctic Ice Sheet as a whole currently contributes about 0.19 mm±0.05 mm per year to global sea level rise, which is largely from the Antarctic Peninsula, the Amundsen Sea sector (including Pine Island Glacier), and which is partly balanced by increased ice accumulation in East Antarctica. Introduction | Temperatures are rising | Ice shelves are collapsing | Glaciers are shrinking | Glaciers are thinning | Glaciers are accelerating | Sea level is rising | Impact of climate on glaciers | References | Comments | What is happening around the Antarctic Peninsula? Warming over the Antarctic Peninsula is exacerbated by a strengthening of the Antarctic Oscillation, which is a periodic strengthening and weakening of the tropospheric westerlies that surround Antarctica. This is a region of very rapid warming, and this has resulted in a whole suite of glaciological changes. How do glaciers respond to climate change, how are they related and linked, and what is driving these changes? The ice-core record indicates that carbon dioxide and temperature co-varied over the last 400 thousand years, which suggests a close link between these ‘greenhouse gases’ and temperature. These marine-terminating glaciers are affected by both oceanic and atmospheric warming. Most modern sea level rise, and sea level rise predicted over the next 100 years, comes from ocean expansion and the melting of small glaciers and ice caps.

Around the Antarctic Peninsula, temperatures are warming at a rate that is approximately six times the global average.
With one particularly warm summer, a thinned ice shelf that is close to its threshold is liable to break up very quickly as meltwater ponding on its surface propagates downwards and initiates iceberg calving by hydrofracture. Recent Antarctic Peninsula warming relative to Holocene climate and ice-shelf history.
I also appreciate that the researchers are pointing out that just because we see something many times, that does not mean that we understand or can replicate it.
