Greenland’s glaciers are melting 100 times faster than expected

Greenland’s glaciers are melting 100 times faster than previously calculated, according to a new model that takes into account the unique interaction between ice and water in the island’s fjords.

New mathematical representation of glacial melt factors in recent observations of how ice is eroding away from the stark vertical faces at the ends of glaciers in GGreenland. Previously, scientists used models developed in Antarcticawhere icy tongues float above sea water – a completely different order.
