In recent times, the Greenland ice sheet began to melt much more intensely than previously anticipated. Based on the latest research data,❄️ the problem didn’t just get worse, but it also grew out of proportions.For many years, researchers have been concerned about the fact that Greenland is gradually falling into icebergs that drift into the Atlantic Ocean. As a consequence, this leads to an increase in the Ocean’s level.
However, more recent studies suggest that the main water influx comes from the south-west of Greenland, where there are practically no large glaciers. Apparently, ☔️ the melting of ice occurs on land, and the resulting meltwater flows into the Atlantic Ocean through the rivers.
Scientists are seriously concerned that South-West Greenland, which previously did not pose a real threat, may turn out to be the main source of sea level rise in the future. This is a serious danger for the islands and coastal cities of the United States because in time they will simply go under water.
