SR has been publishing stories about climate change, and ice melt, since 1991. The first story was one about ice coring in American Scientist. In all that time the constant in the trend is that the outcomes get worse and the timeline collapses. Here is the latest. It is not happy.
Existing computer models may be severely underestimating the risk to Greenland’s ice sheet — which would add 20 feet to sea levels if it all melted — from warming temperatures, according to two studies released Monday. (emphasis added)
Satellite data were instrumental for both studies — one which concludes that Greenland is likely to see many more lakes that speed up melt, and the other which better tracks large glaciers all around Earth’s largest island.
