Mass loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet since AD 1900

Posted on Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Congratulations to Kristian Kjeldsen, a postdoctoral researcher in Glenn Milne's group, on his recent paper published in the journal Nature. The paper estimates mass changes in the Greenland ice sheet using both geological landforms, digital photogrammetry and remote sensing for the period 1900 to the present. The results show that the ice sheet lost mass over this period and that the melt rate has increased significantly in the 21st century.
