Tracking the Cracks in Greenland's Ice Sheet: From 1985 to 2009, the crevasses increased 13 percent, meaning tha...

With an increase in crevasses comes a decrease in moulins, tunnels in the ice that transport surface water to the base of the sheet. In a new study , researchers have observed an expansion of the crevasse fields in one portion of the Greenland ice sheet, a change that they suggest may influence how the ice sheets move toward the ocean and raise sea levels . Cires Research on crevasses in the Greenland ice sheet may help scientists build better computer models to predict the impact of ice bodies on rising sea levels. The researchers, from the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences , a joint institute of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of Colorado at Boulder, compared high-resolution images from 1985 and 2009 in the Sermeq Avannarleq, northeast of Ilulissat in West Greenland. They determined that the area occupied ...
