As the massive ice sheet that once covered much of North America began to melt, icebergs and meltwater would have regularly reached South Carolina and even Florida, according to new research published in the current advance online edition of the journal Nature Geosciences.

Prevailing models from the melting of the Greenland ice sheet have made the calculation that the ice sheet sits atop hard bedrock. A new study from a team of British and American scientists has thrown out that assumption, however.

Data from the European Space Agency's CryoSat-2 spacecraft has been used to map elevation and elevation changes in both Greenland and Antarctica by a team of researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany.

Greenland Ice Sheet Collapse Linked To Sea Level Rise 400,000 Years Ago: Study

A new study suggests that a warming period more than 400,000 years ago pushed the Greenland ice sheet past its stability threshold, resulting in a nearly complete deglaciation of southern Greenland and raising global sea levels some 4-6 meters.

Analyzing The Role Of The Ocean In Greenland Ice Sheet Melting

Ice loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet has increased four-fold over the past four decades, and scientists now report that oceans play a vital role in how quickly the ice sheet will melt and how much total mass will be lost.

In 1889 and 2012, there was large-scale melting of the Greenland ice sheet, and a new study reveals that rising temperatures and ash from Northern Hemisphere forest fires combined to cause the ice melting events.
