This November 2016 photo shows an Adelie penguin at the New Harbor research station near McMurdo Station in Antarctica. Global warming has caused ice to melt faster than normal in the Antarctic, but a study on May 2, 2017 suggested the rate of loss in some areas may be slower than previously thought. Researchers in Britain mapped the change in the speed of ice loss using data from five different satellites, said the report in Geophysical Research Letters, a US scientific journal. Photo: AFP
