These findings have raised concerns of an accelerated ice loss of the West Antarctic ice sheet and potential contributions to global sea
"One of the big unknowns in future sea-level rise is how fast Greenland falls apart, and iceberg calving is one of the least understood mechanisms." David Holland, who is the Principal Investigator for NYU Abu Dhabi's Center for Global Sea
Level Change, commented: "Collecting data from such remote and harsh locations is a big logistical challenge but the amazing data sets now emerging make it all worth the effort." The team ventured to Greenland in the summer of 2016 to install a new radar system to better understand the process.
The gargantuan ice sheet contains enough frozen water to raise global sea
levels by six metres (20 feet).
[USA], July 7 (ANI): The effects of global warming may melt the ice sheet of Greenland and increase global sea
level by the year 3000, say researchers.
It can acquire a variety of marine dynamic parameters such as global sea
surface wind field, wave height and sea surface temperature.
Even though the rapid ice loss takes decades to unfold and centuries to complete, the speed of ice loss from Antarctica is already a major driver of global sea

levels could rise in excess of two metres - causing catastrophic consequences for the world, according to a team of international scientists.
The dramatic increase in melting shows no signs of abating and is adding water to the ocean, accelerating global sea
Greenland's ice sheets contain enough water to raise global sea
levels by 7 meters (23 feet).
Last month marked the start of the first field season of a five-year quest to understand the contribution that the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica will make to global sea
