Acceleration of Greenland ice mass loss in spring 2004

  title={Acceleration of Greenland ice mass loss in spring 2004},
  author={Isabella Velicogna and John M. Wahr},
In 2001 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change projected the contribution to sea level rise from the Greenland ice sheet to be between -0.02 and +0.09 m from 1990 to 2100 (ref. 1). However, recent work has suggested that the ice sheet responds more quickly to climate perturbations than previously thought, particularly near the coast. Here we use a satellite gravity survey by the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) conducted from April 2002 to April 2006 to provide an… CONTINUE READING
