Record Melting in Greenland in August

Record Melting in Greenland in August

Terrible is becoming the situation in Greenland Island as experts are confirming a shocking melting in the region.

After the news of extended melting in Arctic sea ice, researchers are claiming that the records are touching low levels this summer in Greenland’s ice sheet too.

There are still four more weeks to see the end of the melting season and researchers fear that things can go more wrong with the previous records. August 8 recorded the maximum melting of the ice of this summer’s, confirmed Mr. Marco Tedesco, Assistant Professor of Earth and atmospheric sciences at The City College of New York.

Every year, melting season in Greenland lasts from June to early September, when the temperatures start cooling and water freezing into ice. But with this year’s figures, one can see where cumulative melting figures are reaching. In the first week of August only the figures have broke the records of 2010.

“With more yet to come in August, this year’s overall melting will fall way above the old records. That’s a goliath year — the greatest melt since satellite recording began in 1979”, Mr. Tedesco said.

He urged the nation to be careful and ready to see the big change that can soon happen if things remain same, global warming continues increasing and we keep on ignoring the important issue.
