ABSTRACT
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 them, the recent changes that have been monitored extensively are not necessarily the result of anthropogenic-related warming but represent natural sub-decadal fluctuations in the mass balance of the ice sheet.
