New study: Thick sea-ice warms Greenland fjords

(Stockholm University) A new study shows that thick sea-ice can increase the sensitivity of Greenlandic fjords to climate warming. Understanding the factors that control how fast glaciers move, break up and deposit chunks of ice (icebergs) into the fjords – and eventually the sea – is vital for predicting how the Greenland ice sheet will change under a warming climate and for predicting global rates of sea-level rise.
