The ice in Greenland is melting faster than expected. An international Team of geoscientists, the Ohio State University reported in a press release. According to their data, the decrease in the amount of Ice quadrupled – with potentially profound implications for sea-level rise. The study should appear in the scientific journal PNAS.

according to The study, Greenland, recorded between 2002 and 2016, a loss of 280 billion tons of ice per year. It was enough to raise the sea level a year, to 0.8 mm rise, the scientists write, and not a constant loss rate: in 2013, schmolz notice the ice four times as fast as in 2003. All the ice would melt in Greenland, it would raise the sea level by seven meters.

Previously, researchers had assumed that the glacier melt for the Eisrückgang responsible. The current study shows, however, that the largest ice diminution took place since 2003, in the mostly glacier-free South West Greenland.

All good

Unfortunately, no: a Lot of damage are no longer change. The earth is warming in any case. Also, the 2°C warming affect Ecosystems around the world and threatening the livelihoods of millions of people. It is only the scale of the disaster can be contained.Please enable JavaScript to load map view history …

“we knew We had to have outlets, a major Problem with increasing icefall in the case of large Glaciers,” said Michael Bevis, Director of studies and Professor of geodynamics. “Now we see but a second serious Problem: the inner mass of ice flows as a melt water to the sea.” For the near future would therefore expect a more rapid rise in sea level.

The faster melting of ice is, according to the researchers, a result of rising global temperatures caused by man-made climate change. Added to this is the North Atlantic oscillation, a periodic weather phenomenon, which brings warmer air to Greenland.

Everything about climate change, its causes and consequences in this focus.
