But his family will return to Newport Beach today to fulfill Ebsen's last wishes -- to scatter his ashes in the ocean he loved so deeply.

The study, led by UCI Earth system science professor Eric Rignot, used 15 years of radar data from European, Canadian and Japanese satellites. Scientists detected a sharp jump in ice loss in West Antarctica?s Pine Island Bay area and the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. The frozen continent is thinning, and parts are collapsing because of warmer ocean waters bathing its floating glaciers, researchers said.
