Algae Reduce Reflectivity, Enhance Greenland Ice Sheet Melting

New research shows algae growing on the Greenland ice sheet the Earths second-largest ice sheet significantly reduce the surface reflectivity of the ice sheets bare ice area and contribute more to its melting than dust or black carbon.

Greenland Ice Sheet Melt Nearing Critical ‘Tipping Point’ 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, according to new findings from polar researchers.

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.

Melting on Greenland Ice Sheet

New research shows algae growing on the Greenland ice sheet, the Earth's second-largest ice sheet, significantly reduce the surface reflectivity of the ice sheet's bare ice area and contribute more to its melting than dust or black carbon. The new findings could influence scientists' understanding of ice sheet melting and projections of future sea level rise, according to the study's authors.

Global warming is causing rain to melt the Greenland ice sheet

Summer Weather 2015 Greenland Ice Sheet Greenland’s ice sheet has been melting faster than normal this year. Both higher temperatures and increased rainfall are said to be affecting the massive ice sheet.

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 ...

Under the Greenland Ice Sheet

Greenland's "Grand Canyon" Discovered Under Ice Sheet! A colossal canyon, the longest on Earth, has just been found under Greenland's ice sheet, scientists announced on Thursday, Aug. in the journal Science.

Rare Burst of Melting Seen in Greenland’s Ice Sheet  By KELLY SLIVKA    In a scant four days this month, the surface of Greenland’s ice sheet melted to an extent not witnessed in 30 years of satellite observations, NASA reported on Tuesday.

And Global warming is bogus according to many leaders and politicians? Satellites see unprecedented Greenland ice sheet surface melt

Greenland's Ice Layers Mapped in 3D: The Greenland Ice Sheet, covering an area three times the size of Texas, is the second biggest chunk of ice on the planet. The Greenland Ice Sheet has enough frozen water locked up to raise worldwide sea levels by 20 feet—and it’s been losing mass over the past 20 years. Global warming isn’t predicted to stop any time soon, so scientists really want to know what’s going to happen to the ice in the near and distant future.
