Northern hemisphere losing last dry snow region, says study

Northern hemisphere losing last dry snow region, says study
(Phys.org) —Last July, something unprecedented in the 34-year satellite record happened: 98 percent of the Greenland Ice Sheet's surface melted, compared to roughly 50 percent during an average summer. Snow that usually stays frozen and dry turned wet with melt water. Research led by the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences now shows last summer's extreme melt could soon be the new normal. http://phys.org/news/2013-05-northern-hemisphere-region.html#nwlt
