Climate change may make Greenland greener by 2100

Last Updated: Wednesday, August 28, 2013, 21:10

Climate change could lead to extensive growth of trees and bushes in large parts of Greenland - that are currently ice-free - by the end of the century, scientists predict.

Heat flow from Earth`s mantle leading to Greenland ice sheet melting

Last Updated: Tuesday, August 13, 2013, 09:23

The Greenland ice sheet is melting from below, caused by a high heat flow from the mantle into the lithosphere.

Ice melt from icebergs to have massive impact on sea level rise

Last Updated: Tuesday, July 23, 2013, 18:49

Stretches of ice on the coasts of Antarctica and Greenland are at risk of rapidly cracking apart and falling into the ocean, which could worsen sea level rise, according to new findings.

Jury still out on possible extent of Antarctic`s ice sheet melting by 2100

Last Updated: Tuesday, July 16, 2013, 14:52

Researchers suggest that the time period of satellite observations of Greenland ice sheets and the Antarctic is still too short to be able to predict whether the accelerated loss of ice measured today will persist in future.

Huge ice sheets melting `at rate of 300bn tonnes a year`

Last Updated: Monday, July 15, 2013, 11:08

Massive ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland are losing around 300 billion tonnes of ice every year, new research has indicated.
