Entire Greenland Ice Sheet Experiences Significant Surface Melting

25 Jul 2012: Entire Greenland Ice Sheet Experiences Significant Surface Melting New NASA satellite images show that the surface of virtually the entire ice sheet covering Greenland experienced melting in mid-July , a phenomenon not seen in three decades of satellite observations. Click to enlarge NASA Extent of Greenland ice melt, July 8-12 Temperatures rose so high that ice on the Greenland’s highest peak, Summit Station, turned to slush, NASA said. Until the severe melting earlier this month, the greatest extent of surface melting observed by satellites over the past three decades covered about 55 percent of the ice sheet; on July 12, 97 percent of the ice sheet experienced surface melting. Ice cores from Greenland show that such melting events have occurred roughly every 150 years, but Greenland’s ice sheet has been experiencing rapid melting in the past decade and if a...
