A clearer picture of glacial ice loss

A new study aimed at refining the way scientists measure ice loss in Greenland is providing a “high-definition picture” of climate-caused changes on the island.

And the picture isn’t pretty.

In the last decade, two of the largest three glaciers draining that frozen landscape have lost enough ice that, if melted, could have filled Lake Erie.

“This new research pumps up the resolution and gives us a kind of high-definition picture of ice loss,” researchers said.
