Under glaciers of Greenland found more than 50 lakes


The subglacial reservoirs found in Greenland not such big, as in Antarctica where there are about 470 lakes. Scientists found 54 unknown of lakes with liquid water under a glacial board of Greenland hitherto. It on Wednesday, June 26, BBC with reference to a research of scientists from the USA and Great Britain reports. It is noted that the subglacial reservoirs found in Greenland not such big, as in Antarctica where there are about 470 lakes. The largest lake of Antarctica is called the East. Its extent reaches 250 kilometers. And the biggest lake under ices of Greenland all six kilometers long. "Unlike the Antarctic lakes under ice which are usually formed between internal splits these new Greenland lakes are generally located at edges of a board under ice with rather slow movement. Most of them are stable", – Jade Bouling from Lancaster University told. Earlier it became known that for the last 46 years rates of thawing of ices in Greenland increased six times. Loss by this island of ices already 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.
