For the first time, scientists from Aarhus University in Denmark have unveiled the long-term impact of the melting of the Greenland ice sheet   Read More ...

In warmer climates, Greenlandic deltas have grown, new analysis of 75-year-old aerial photos confirms
Deltas are important ecosystems, where freshwater meets the sea, and where people for centuries have been engaged in agriculture and fishing. Today, most of the deltas in the world are drowning because of increased human exploitation and a rise in the global sea level. In an article just published in Nature, a research team led by researchers at the University of Copenhagen has shown that deltas in Greenland, unlike most other deltas, are growing   Read More ...

Greenland ice flow likely to speed up
Flow of the Greenland Ice Sheet is likely to speed up in the future, despite a recent slowdown, because its outlet glaciers slide over wet sediment, not hard rock, new research based on seismic surveys has confirmed. This sediment will become weaker and more slippery as global temperatures rise and meltwater supply becomes more variable. The findings challenge the view that the recent slowdowns in ice flow would continue in the long term   Read More ...

Melting of Greenland glacier to speed up — study
MIAMI, United States — The Greenland ice sheet is likely to melt faster in the years to come, despite a recent slowdown, researchers said Wednesday after making a new discovery about the way glaciers move. Greenland contains enough ice to make the sea level mount 23 feet (seven meters) if it were to melt completely. The findings in the journal Science Advances show that ice in Greenland moves more quickly over sediment than hard rock   Read More ...

Greenland is still burning, but the smoke may be the real problem
than two weeks after they were first spotted, wildfires on the west coast of Greenland are still burning, worrying local residents and drawing the attention of scientists. The fires are roughly 90 miles northeast of the second-largest Greenlandic town, Sisimiut, as we previously reported. There are currently three growing hotspots, according to an analysis of NASA data by Stef Lhermitte, an assistant professor of geoscience and remote sensing at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands   Read More ...

'Unusual' Greenland wildfires linked to peat
New images have been released of wildfires that continue to burn close to the Greenland ice sheet, on the country's west coast. Fires are rare on an island where 80% of the land is covered by ice up to 3km thick in places. However, satellites have observed smoke and flames north-east of a town called Sisimiut since 31 July. Experts believe at least two fires are burning in peat that may have dried out as temperatures have risen   Read More ...
