Thawing of ices of Greenland accelerated six times – scientists


Scientists warn that the trends revealed by them, most likely, will become even more disturbing in the nearest future. For the last 46 years rates of thawing of ices in Greenland increased six times. It is said in the research of group of scientists from Denmark, the Netherlands, the USA and France published the day before in the bulletin of National Academy of Sciences of the USA. Experts analysed scales of reduction of mass of ices in Greenland in 1972-2018. It is claimed that loss by this island of ices in 46 years led to increase in global sea level on 13.7 mm (a plus-minus of 1.1 mm). And a half of this growth fell on the last eight years. According to the estimates of authors of a research, between 1972-80 Greenland lost about 47 Gt of ice a year, between 1980-1990 – 51 Gt a year, between 1990-2000 – 41 Gt a year, between 2000-2010 – 187 Gt a year, and between 2010-2018 – 286 Gt a year. Scientists warn that the trends revealed by them, most likely, will become even more disturbing in the nearest future. They explain that rates of thawing of ices in the northwest and the northeast of Greenland were not as high in the last decades, as in other areas of the island. Respectively, their growth owing to global warming is fraught with faster increase in global sea level. Earlier in other research it was said that glaciers of Greenland allegedly ceased to thaw and even began to increase an ice cover. The scenes shot in recent years from air demonstrated to it. However experts assumed that this effect can be temporary. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram. Subscribe for our https://t.me/korrespondentnet channel
