Greenland is melting and it even looks bad from area

Greenland is melting and it even looks bad from area

This satellite view of Greenland shows bright blue melt ponds. NASA Europe is cooking. Siberia is on fire. Greenland is melting. Welcome to the new world; it's hotter than the old one. Climate scientist and glaciologist Ruth Mottram of the Danish Meteorological Institute took to Twitter on Thursday to share the sobering news that Greenland…

As global warming ramps up, expect to see Greenland in the news a lot. That’s because its ice sheet is under threat of melting. But that’s not the only reason. The other reason is fire. We know that Greenland, like the rest of the globe, is warming. And it’s ice is melting and contributing to…
Greenland’s Superfast ‘Ice Slides’ Might Be Problem for Environment Modification

Greenland’s Superfast ‘Ice Slides’ Might Be Problem for Environment Modification

Greenland's ice sheet is sliding way more than previously thought, according to a new study. This means that the ice sheet can change faster in a warming climate, a group of researchers reported July 10 in the journal Science Advances. "Understanding ice flow is quite important to predicting future melt from Greenland," said study lead…
NASA Design Reveals Greenland’s Ice Sheet Will Disappear Over the Next 1000 Years, Raising Water Level by 7 Meters

Great news! Humankind’s greatest-ever engineering project is nearing completion. Soon we will have warmed the Earth enough to get rid of all those pesky ice sheets and other frozen areas. The finish line is in sight. If we all work together for the next thousand years, we’ll finally reach our goal! NASA has been tracking…

The view from northern Greenland during a heat wave over the past week.  Steffen M. Olsen / DMI Over the past week temperatures in northern Greenland have been comparable to the weather in Seattle, causing the top layer of sea ice near the village of Qaanaaq to turn into the Arctic equivalent of a kiddie…

Enlarge / Staring down the barrel of an ice core drill. Sarah Das / WHOI The Greenland Ice Sheet’s unhealthy and rapid weight loss—and contribution to sea-level rise—occurs by a handful of mechanisms. In short, ice at the edge of the glacier can melt or break off into icebergs, and surface snow farther inland can…

Big, formerly unidentified effect crater discovered underneath Greenland’s ice

Big, formerly unidentified effect crater discovered underneath Greenland’s ice

You might not think of giant impact craters as being particularly subtle or in any way capable of hiding from us. If so, you’ll be surprised by the discovery, announced this week, of a 31-kilometer- (19-mile-) wide crater we didn’t know existed. Let’s get the important questions out of the way—no, the crater isn’t home…
