Greenland ice sheet melt "off the charts" compared with past four centuries

5 Dec 2018, WHOI

According to new research, climate change has accelerated melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet so dramatically that there is a 50% increase in total ice sheet meltwater runoff versus the start of the industrial era. As a result, Greenland melt is currently adding more to sea level than at any time during the last three and a half centuries, if not thousands of years.
