A viral image from Greenland has got people talking about global warming

A photo about the warm weather in Greenland has sparked debate on global warming with many saying that there's no clearer sign of its impact.

Possible second impact crater under Greenland ice found: NASA

If the second crater is ultimately confirmed as the result of a meteorite impact, it will be the 22nd largest impact crater found on Earth, according to the findings published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.


Ice Age asteroid crater discovered beneath Greenland glacier

The discovery could lead to insights into the ice age climate, and the effects on it from the eruption of debris that would have resulted from such a cataclysmic collision.

Earth's heat loss pushing Greenland's ice sheet towards sea

Scientists have found that Greenland's ice caps are melting faster than previously predicted. The melting can be attributed to increased melting of ice below sea level.

Greenland has four times more coastal glaciers than estimated: Study

Up to four times more coastal glaciers in Greenland are at risk of accelerated melting than previously thought, say scientists

Melting ice affecting marine life around Greenland, global ocean currents: Study

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.


Greenland ice river becomes world's fastest flowing glacier

The research was published in The Cryosphere, a journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

Greenland residents grapple with global warming

As scientists study the threats posed by a warming climate, some of the immediate effects of climate change have been a double-edged sword for some in and around Tasiilaq.

In Greenland, a glacier's collapse shows climate impact

The March mission was part of NASA’s Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) project, a five-year, $30 million effort aimed at improving sea level rise projections by understanding how warming oceans are melting ice sheets from below - the most ambitious research on the subject to date
