Greenland Ice Sheet Melting Doubled Over The Last Century

This article discusses Greenland’s melting glaciers.

The melting of the Greenland ice sheet has nearly doubled since the end of the 19th century and is currently melting at its fastest rate in at least 400 years, according to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. The research finds the largest driver of this melting has been an increase in summer temperatures of about 1.2 degrees Celsius (2.2 Fahrenheit) since the 1870s.
