Is Greenland Getting Darker?

Is Greenland Getting Darker?
July 01, 2017

The Greenland ice sheet has recently experienced accelerated glacier melting, causing a global sea level rise. Along with warming Arctic temperatures, melting may be increased by a darkening snow surface – if the ice and snow on the surface is dark, it will absorb solar radiation more quickly, warmup and melt causing a massive sea-level rise that would put many of the world’s cities underwater.
