ABSTRACT
The article discusses research on loss of Greenland glaciers due to global warming, which was published in the journal "Nature Geoscience." The photographs taken during the trip of Danish explorer Knud Rasmussen in 1932, known as the Seventh Thule Expedition, are now being used to analyze how glaciers in Greenland have responded to recent climate changes.
