but what happens in Greenland isn't staying in Greenland. Ice melt taking place as a result of warming temperatures over the island's ice sheet has become a "major" contributor to rising sea ...
Greenland's glaciers are melting 100 times faster than previously calculated, according to a new model that takes into account the unique interaction between ice and water at the island’s fjords.
"For years, people took the melt rate model for Antarctic floating glaciers and applied it to Greenland's vertical glacier fronts," explains the physical oceanographer Kirstin Schulz from UT.
Significant warming in Greenland’s ice sheet is nearing a tipping point, scientists say, which could trigger catastrophic melting. Greenland holds enough ice that if it all melted, it could lift ...
