Greenland

Cold water currently slowing fastest Greenland glacier

25 Mar 2019, NASA, United States of America - gov

NASA research shows that the Jakobshavn Glacier, which has been Greenland's fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier for the last 20 years, has made an unexpected about-face. Jakobshavn is now flowing more slowly, thickening, and advancing toward the ocean instead of retreating farther inland. The glacier is still adding to sea level rise but at a slower rate.
