More summer sun accelerating Greenland ice melt, study says   Scientists at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom suggest increasing sunshine over the past 20 years is accelerating ice melt across Greenland. The findings in their new study are concerning, as Greenland’s ice sheet is 1.7 million square kilometres. If all of the ice sheet melted, its estimated that global sea levels could ...

IMAGE: Unprecedented Greenland Ice Melt Stuns NASA Scientists

Unprecedented melting of Greenland's ice sheet this month has stunned NASA scientists. In just a few days, the melting had dramatically accelerated and an estimated 97 percent of the ice sheet surface had thawed by July This last happened in

Greenland ice is melting -- even from below: Heat flow from the mantle contributes to the ice melt

Greenland ice is melting -- even from below: Heat flow from the mantle contributes to the ice melt

The Greenland ice sheet is melting from below, caused by a high heat flow from the mantle into the lithosphere. This influence is very variable spatially and has its origin in an exceptionally thin lithosphere.

Greenland ice melt due to ‘global warming’ found not so bad after all

Greenland ice melt underestimated, study says  ... Amount of land covered by supraglacial lakes on Greenland ice sheet will double by 2060, exacerbating melting as temperatures rise

Amount of land covered by supraglacial lakes on Greenland ice sheet will double by exacerbating melting as temperatures rise

Winnowing away of the ice, exacerbated by soot blown on to the ice from wildfires, means Greenland’s ice sheet is stuck in a ‘feedback loop’

Greenland's ice melt accelerating as surface darkens, raising sea levels

Sheet surface started becoming less reflective of solar radiation around and summer near-surface temperatures have increased.

Greenland Ice Melting Is Being Enhanced By Growth of Algae - The Daily Catch

In an indication that 2012 may be a record melt year for Greenland's ice sheet, data shows the reflectivity of the ice sheet is near a record low.

The Greenland ice sheet is poised for another record melt this year, and is approaching a "tipping point" into a new and more dangerous melt regime in which the summer melt area covers the entire land mass

New climate model predicts likelihood of Greenland ice melt, sea level rise and dangerous temperatures

A new computer model of accumulated carbon emissions predicts the likelihood of crossing several dangerous climate change thresholds. These include global temperature rise sufficient to lose the Greenland Ice Sheet and generate .
