If climate change proceeds, the melting of Greenland’s glaciers could pose a serious threat, say scientists. In a study published in today’s issue of the journal Nature, researchers found that the glaciers of Greenland are more susceptible to melting than the West Antarctic ice sheet, which scientists have been watching for years for signs of melt. The study authors warn that if nothing is done to stabilize our climate, Greenland’s melting glaciers could contribute significantly to rising ocean levels and the flooding of low-lying coastal areas in the coming century.
