Greenland is melting away

For years, scientists have studied the impact of the planet’s warming on the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. But while researchers have satellite images to track the icebergs that break off, and have created models to simulate the thawing, they have little on-the-ground information and so have trouble predicting precisely how fast sea levels will rise.
This summer in Greenland, scientists set up their camp on the ice, where they hoped to capture the first comprehensive measurements of the rate of melting.
