A major Greenland glacier is melting away with the tide, which could signal faster sea level rise, study finds

Scientists revealed on Monday that a significant glacier in northwest Greenland is interacting with the ocean tides, leading to hitherto unaccounted-for melting and perhaps accelerated sea level rise. The report was released on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by a group of glaciologists from the University of California, Irvine and …

Greenland’s glaciers are melting 100 times faster than estimated

Scientists are getting a better handle on how fast Greenland’s ice is flowing out to sea. Old models that used Antarctica as a baseline were way off the mark. 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 …
