Greenland ice may melt faster due to increase in temperature
Washington, Jan 26 (ANI): A new study has shed light on Greenland Ice demonstrating that the more temperatures increase, the faster the ice will melt. The model experiments conducted by Penn State geoscientists suggested that if all the ice in the Greenland Ice Sheet melts, global sea level would rise by about 24 feet. Patrick Applegate, research associate, Penn State's Earth and Environmental ...(1/26/2015 5:36:51 AM)
Science Graphic of the Week: The Greenland Ice Sheet in 3-D
Thanks to global warming, rising sea levels threaten to permanently flood low-lying regions around the world from the Maldives to Manhattan. The increasing temperatures melt glaciers and polar ice, inundating the oceans with freshwater. One block of melting ice that’s particularly important is the Greenland Ice Sheet, which, covering an area three times the size […] The post Science Graphic of ...(1/29/2015 6:40:49 AM)
New Lakes Discovered Under Greenland's Ice Hint at Warming
The discovery of two large lakes hidden beneath Greenland's ice suggests that climate change now cuts all the way to the bottom of the ice sheet, according to two new studies. The lakes, on opposite coasts, were only spotted because meltwater from Greenland's surface triggered gushing floods in the fall of 2011. The discovery of these lakes will help scientists better understand how Greenland's ...(1/22/2015 8:47:25 AM)
How Greenland Got Its Glaciers
Greenland is famous for its massive glaciers, but the region was relatively free of ice until about 2.7 million years ago, according to a new study. The Greenland ice sheet began building after plate tectonics and the Earth's shifting tilt reshaped the region, the researchers found. "Our work was motivated by the question of why extensive glaciations of Greenland started only during the past few ...(1/13/2015 5:11:28 PM)
Greenland may lose ice more rapidly in future than previously thought

NASA Data Peers into Greenland's Ice Sheet
Peering into the thousands of frozen layers inside Greenland's ice sheet is like looking back in time. Each layer provides a record of what Earth's climate was like at the dawn of civilization, or during the last ice age, or during an ancient period of warmth similar to the one we experience today.(1/28/2015 3:59:14 AM)
