Regional warming triggers sustained mass loss in Northeast Greenland ice sheet

Last Updated: Monday, March 17, 2014, 11:22

Researchers have found that Northeast Greenland ice sheet started to speed up and lose mass around 2003 because of localised increase in temperatures.

Greenland ice sheet melt causing four-fold global sea level increase

Last Updated: Friday, February 07, 2014, 15:58

A new report suggests that over the past two decades, ice loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet increased four-fold contributing to one-quarter of global sea level rise.

Greenland`s `fastest glacier` smashes breaking speed record

Last Updated: Tuesday, February 04, 2014, 12:23

Researchers have suggested that Jakobshavn Isbrae (Jakobshavn Glacier) is moving ice from the Greenland ice sheet into the ocean at a speed that seems to be the fastest ever recorded.

Greenland`s ice sheet was smaller 3,000-5,000 years ago

Last Updated: Saturday, November 23, 2013, 13:08

Scientists have said that Greenland`s shrunken ice sheet was smaller than today about 3-5,000 years ago.

NASA to map Greenland ice sheet summer melt

Last Updated: Saturday, November 02, 2013, 11:22

For the first time, the Laser Vegetation Imaging Sensor, or LVIS, is set to fly aboard NASA`s new C-130 aircraft to map Greenland`s ice sheet and surrounding Arctic sea ice following a summer`s melt.

When we all thought that all the mysteries of Earth have been unveiled, we stumble upon this discovery. Scientists have discovered a vast canyon, twice as long as the Grand Canyon.

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.

Greenland`s ice sheet melting rapidly

Last Updated: Thursday, July 11, 2013, 14:33

A new study has revealed that surface ice melt will be the dominant process controlling ice-loss from Greenland.

New rover set to explore Greenland ice sheet

Last Updated: Thursday, May 02, 2013, 10:32

NASA`s newest scientific rover, known as GROVER is set for testing May 3 through June 8 in the highest part of Greenland.

Greenland ice sheet marker of increased atmospheric acidity

Last Updated: Saturday, December 08, 2012, 19:38

In a new study, researchers have suggested that the decline in levels of the isotope nitrogen-15 is more directly related to increased acidity in the atmosphere.

Greenland’s ice sheet melting shatters 30-year record

Last Updated: Thursday, August 16, 2012, 11:35

Melting over the Greenland ice sheet broke the seasonal record on August 8 – four weeks before the close of the melting season, it has been revealed.

Greenland’s ice sheet melts in spurts

Last Updated: Friday, August 03, 2012, 13:21

Loss of ice from Greenland’s vast sheet may occur mainly in short bursts, suggest Danish scientists who used aerial photos dating back to the 1980s to plot shrinking of glaciers around the island’s northwest coast.
