Greenland's ice sheet melting faster than expected

Posted on Saturday, August 12 2006 @ 14:15:17 CEST by

New scientific studies say Greenland's rapidly melting ice sheer and the pace of Antarctic snowfall suggest that sea levels may be rising faster than researchers previously assumed.
The papers, both published yesterday in the journal Science, provide the latest evidence of how climate change is transforming the global landscape. University of Texas at Austin researchers, using twin satellites, determined that the Greenland ice sheet, Earth's second-largest reservoir of fresh water, is melting at three times the rate at which it had been melting over the previous five years. A separate study by 16 international scientists concluded that Antarctic snowfall accumulation has remained steady over the past 50 years, with no increases that might have mitigated the melting of the ice shelf, as some researchers had assumed would occur.
