NASA climate scientists report that Antarctica has gained ice in the form of snow accumulation. This study was recently published in the Journal of Glaciology and reporters have sought comments from their peers at the Polar Science Center.

Tech Insider and National Geographic refer to comments, in the press release of the report, from Ben Smith and other glacial researchers not involved with the study, for what you need to know about the new findings.

Ian Joughin also remarked on the study for Scientific American.
