Photo: NASA Recent satellite images from NASA have shown that the Greenland ice melt has reached unprecedented levels during the summer season, nearly doubling the normal amount. According to a NASA press release , about half of Greenland’s surface ice sheet naturally melts during an average summer. But the data from three independent satellites this July, analyzed by NASA and university scientists, showed that in less than a week, the amount of thawed ice sheet surface spiked from 40 percent to 97 percent. The drastic change in percentage had Son Nghiem of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory first speculating about the validity of the images. “This was so extraordinary that at first I questioned the result: Was this real or was it due to a data error?” The data...
