I've been monitoring the temps at the stations there daily, I'm not sure it seems to be overly warmer than usual? How can we be sure it's actually melting. If it is, then yeah I agree the volcanoes would seem to be a likely culprit.

Wow, forgive my ignorance, but which stations are at the south pole? I had mainly been paying attention to Vostok as well as stations on the peninsula, all of which seemed to be relatively normal temps all summer so far.
