Why are glaciers and icebergs important?

A new study has shown that the world's ice is melting at a faster rate than previously thought.

According to the study, the Earth lost 28 trillion tonnes of ice between 1994 and 2017, which is the same as a sheet of ice, 100 metres thick, covering the whole of the UK.
