Massive Northeast Greenland Glacier Is Rapidly Melting

Irvine, Calif., Nov. 12, 2015 – A glacier in northeast Greenland that holds enough water to raise global sea levels by more than 18 inches has come unmoored from a stabilizing sill and is crumbling into the North Atlantic Ocean. Losing mass at a rate of 5 billion tons per year, glacier Zachariae Isstrom entered

The Greenland Ice Sheet: Now in HD

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 18, 2014—The Greenland Ice Sheet is ready for its close-up. The highest-resolution satellite images ever taken of that region are making their debut. And while each individual pixel represents only one moment in time, taken together they show the ice sheet as a kind of living body—flowing, crumbling and melting out to sea.
