The article offers information on the ice melting of the Northern Greenland during the interglaciation. It states that the stimulation on the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) during the Eemian interglaciation with the three-dimensional ice sheet model SICOPOLIS was performed. It mentions that the northeastern part of the GrIS is unstable and retreats significantly, despite moderate melt rates.
