  5. NASA reveals new mode of ice loss in Greenland

    Bgr.in - Gadgets 05.27 / 01:59 bgr.in
    A new NASA study has revealed a new mode of ice loss in Greenland that may increase the potential for sustained loss of mass as the climate continues to warm up, with implications for the future rate of sea level rise. During Greenland’s hottest summers on record, 2010 and 2012, the ice in Rink Glacier on the island’s west coast did not just melt faster than usual, it slid through the glacier’s interior in a gigantic wave, like a warmed freezer pop sliding out of its…
