Greenland ice is melting - also from below
Potsdam, Germany (SPX) Aug 14, 2013 - The Greenland ice sheet is melting from below, caused by a high heat flow from the mantle into the lithosphere. This influence is very variable spatially and has its origin in an exceptionally thin lithosphere. Consequently, there is an increased heat flow from the mantle and a complex interplay between this geothermal heating and the Greenland ice sheet. The international research initiat ... morehttp://www.terradaily.com/reports/Greenland_ice_is_melting_also_from_below_999.html
