This is one of thousands of giant sinkholes, or moulins, in Greenland where water is draining through the ice sheet into the ocean. Meltwater from Greenland is the largest current contributor to global sea level rise -- double that of Antarctica -- making the island ground zero for scientists studying climate change.
... then the adjacent ring of Arctic waters including the surrounding seas, -- the Bering Sea, the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, the Greenland Sea, the Norwegian Sea, the Barents Sea, the Kara Sea, the Laptev Sea, the East Siberian Sea, and the Chukchi Sea - marine areas within the geographical purview ...

Melting ice is causing coastal waters in Greenland to become less saline, which may in turn affect marine life as well as the global ocean currents that keep Europe warm, a study warns. For the first time, scientists from Aarhus University in Denmark have unveiled the long-term impact of the melting of the ...
Date: October 13, 2017; Source: Aarhus University; Summary: For the first time, ocean data from Northeast Greenland reveals the long-term impact of the melting of the Greenland ice sheet. The observed increase in freshwater content will affect the conditions in all Greenland fjords and may ultimately affect the global ocean ...
All of this new data, Rignot said, will now be fed into sophisticated models that, he thinks, will probably lead to higher estimates of Greenland's sea level rise potential in this century and beyond. "I think when they're going to use these new bed models, the projections are going to change," he said.

... predominate over the Greenland ice sheet, and with higher pressure comes fewer clouds. However, this strength and importance of this connection remains a matter of some debate, he says. Regardless, "this study helps explains why Greenland Sea ice is melting faster than expected," Overland says.

So far, OMG has measured Greenland's sea floor and mapped the continental shelf, a crucial piece in the melt puzzle. "Ancient glaciers carved these troughs through the continental shelf," Willis says. The channels allow warm water to flow between the glaciers, eating away at the ice. Unfortunately, "a lot ...

Paris - Ocean levels rose 50 percent faster in 2014 than in 1993, with meltwater from the Greenland ice sheet now supplying 25 percent of total sea level increase compared with just 5 percent 20 years earlier, researchers reported Monday. The findings add to growing concern among scientists that the ...
