Good thing we didn’t call it Iceland, right?!
“Our results show a clear link in the timing of animal recovery and the recovery of Earth systems.”
Our planet has received its fair share of visitors along the years. This one has been hiding under Greenland’s thick ice.
In the past 20 years, Greenland’s ice sheet has been melting at six-fold the rate seen before the Industrial Revolution.

Knowing how much water gets melted into the oceans will help us estimate the impact of rising sea levels.

The vast region is experiencing a freakishly early spring thaw, with 12% of Greenland’s ice melting on Monday, according to the Danish Meteorological Institute. “We had to check that our models were still working properly,”6 Peter Langen, climate scientist at DMI, told blog Polar Portal.
