ABSTRACT
The article discusses scientific research on global warming done in the Arctic by the North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling (NEEM) project. Topics include drilling into the ice-core, the geodesic dome in which participants work, and analysis done on the earth's ancient atmosphere. Also discussed is preparing meals in the Arctic.

    The article focuses on the environmental history of the ice-damned lake Isvand in Greenland. It notes that in relation to the Little Ice Age (LIA) expansion of Kangiata Nunaata Sermia, Isvand has a unique history. A gradual growth of the lake came after the thinning of Kangiata Nunaata Sermia...

    The article focuses on a study about the velocity sensitivity of glacier flow speed to surface melt variations at Helheim Glacier in Greenland. It is said that flow speed affects the ice volume drained through the outlet glaciers in the region, highlighting the need for controlling the rapid...

    It is important to understand recent changes in the velocity of Greenland glaciers because the mass balance of the Greenland Ice Sheet is partly determined by the flow rates of these outlets. Jakobshavn Isbræis Greenland's largest outlet glacier, draining about 6.5 per cent of the ice-sheet...

    The article discusses the changes of Mittivakkat Gletscher glacier in Greenland with observation that it have thinned and receded throughout the past several decades. It documents changes with surface velocity measurements and long-term mass balance observations. It is noted that the glacier...

  • The Recent Wasting Away of the Greenland Ice Sheet.  // CO2 Science;11/10/2010, Vol. 13 Issue 45, p4 

    The article discusses a research study to determine whether the Greenland ice sheet's recent mass loss is really extraordinary. The researchers found that the present-day surface mass-balance (SMB) decline over the decade 1995-2005 was no different from that of the decade 1923-1933. According to...

    The article focuses on a study about the microstructural evolution of fine-grained layers from the firn structure in Summit, Greenland. Firn is described as a porous multi-year snow comprised of ice and air that makes up the top 60-100 meters of the polar ice sheets. Results showed that...
