The effect of climate change on iceberg production by Greenland glaciers

The effect of climate change on iceberg production by Greenland glaciers
While the impact of climate change on the surface of the Greenland ice sheet has been widely studied, a clear understanding of the key process of iceberg production has eluded researchers for many years. Published in Nature this week, a new study presents a sophisticated computer model that provides a fresh insight into the impact of climate change on the production of icebergs by Greenland glaciers, and reveals that the shape of the ground beneath the ice has a strong effect on its movement. http://phys.org/news/2013-05-effect-climate-iceberg-production-greenland.html#nwlt
