Scientists Caution That Changes In Greenland's Jakobshavn Glacier Are Temporary

Published on 18 Jul 2019 / In News & Politics

CNN reports that Greenland's largest glacier, Jakobshavn, is gaining ice. The increase in ice accumulation was discovered by NASA researchers. Scientists studying the critical glacier attribute the gain to localized ocean cooling..While this finding is surprising and temporarily good news for the glacier, Ala Khazendar, lead scientists on the study cautions; "This is a reprieve, not a resurrection". For two decades, Jakobshavn sustained remarkably consistent thinning that scientists thought would continue, if not accelerate, leading to rising sea levels.
