Rowan climate scientist leads research into Greenland ice melt

The melting of the Greenland ice sheet is off the charts today. What we found with our ice cores is that it’s melting today more than at any time within at least the last three and a half centuries, and probably, melting more today than any time in the last seven to eight thousand years. When Greenland melts and that
