Due to recent changes in the climatic condition that lead by human activities melt down the Glaciers in the Antarctic region. The melting of ice leads to detection of water movement beneath the ice by NASA and discovered the water that were flowing at a speed of a kilometer per year. The rivers that were formed in Antarctic don't even stretch for a mile and end up in the Ocean.
