NEWS: Greenland ice melt caused sea levels to rise several metres some 400,000 years ago, at temperatures expected this century
Indian/NASA collaboration reveals 97% of ice surface area has begun to melt, more than double the usual extent during summer. However, more data required to attribute melting to climate change.
Glaciers have “sped up” and contribution to sea level rise still significant but data shows we’re not on track for worst case scenario.
New research find the Greenland ice sheet may be more sensitive to long term climate change then scientists had previously thought.
