Greenland may lose ice more rapidly in future than previously thought

A new study has provided the first comprehensive picture of how Greenland's glaciers have changed over the past decade.

A new study has revealed that despite its apparent stability, the massive ice sheet covering most of Greenland is more sensitive to climate change than earlier estimates have suggested.

Greenland ice sheet collapse linked to sea level rise 400,000 years ago

Researchers suggests that a warming period more than 400,000 years ago pushed the Greenland ice sheet past its stability threshold; resulting in a nearly complete deglaciation of southern Greenland and raising global sea levels some 4-6 meters.

Ancient tundra landscape discovered under Greenland Ice Sheet

Scientists were greatly surprised to discover an ancient tundra landscape preserved under the Greenland Ice Sheet, below two miles of ice.

Regional warming triggers sustained mass loss in Northeast Greenland ice sheet

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

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

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.

Lakes discovered beneath Greenland ice sheet

Researchers have for the first time discovered two subglacial lakes hiding 800 metres below the Greenland Ice Sheet.

Giant canyon discovered under Greenland ice sheet

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

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

New rover set to explore Greenland ice sheet

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 may be sliding away due to surface lake melt

Greenland ice sheet may be sliding faster into the ocean because of massive releases of meltwater from surface lakes, a new study suggests.
