Nbcnews: This ice-making submarine would pop out bergs to help fight climate change

"From building floating cities and towering sea walls to erecting snow cannons in Antarctica to help replenish melting polar ice, scientists and urban planners have proposed all sorts of schemes to defend against rising seas — one of the most worrisome consequences of climate change."

Market Business News: Geoengineered snowstorm could halt Antarctic ice collapse, save coastal regions

"The ice sheet that covers the west Antarctic is at risk of collapsing into the ocean. The destabilization has gone too far for greenhouse gas reduction to stop the collapse, although it might restore ice sheet stability in other parts of the continents."

Today online: Explainer: Can artificial snow save the West Antarctic ice sheet and prevent sea levels from rising?

"With the West Antarctic ice sheet starting to melt, which can lead to a rise in sea levels, a team of researchers has come up with a radical proposal: To artificially create snow to thicken up the ice sheet.

The Japan Times: Scientists' 'terrible' idea calls for snow cannons to pump ice in bid to save Antarctic ice shelf

"Scientists seeking to avoid catastrophic sea-level rises from the melting West Antarctic ice sheet have come up with a 'terrible' solution: use snow cannons to pump trillions of tons of ice back on top."

Feldmann, J.; et al. (2019): Stabilizing the West Antarctic Ice Sheet by surface mass deposition

Feldmann, J.; Levermann, A.; Mengel, M. (2019): Stabilizing the West Antarctic Ice Sheet by surface mass deposition. In: Science Advances 5 (7), eaaw4132. DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aaw4132.

"There is evidence that a self-sustaining ice discharge from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) has started, potentially leading to its disintegration. The associated sea level rise of more than 3m would pose a serious challenge to highly populated areas including metropolises such as Calcutta, Shanghai, New York City, and Tokyo. Here, we show that the WAIS may be stabilized through mass deposition in coastal regions around Pine Island and Thwaites glaciers."
