It rained for several hours, with a total of nine hours of freezing temperatures, he writes. Analysts at the summit.
– Rain in the form of rain at that altitude has not yet been recorded. Maria Sand, a meteorologist at the CICERO Center for Climate Research, says there have been three positive temperatures over the past ten years, which is usually the coldest.
He works with research on climate change, especially in the Arctic.
– Combined with snow and sleet settling rain, which led to melting seven times more than normal at this time of year.
This is the largest melting point seen since the beginning of the measurements in 1979, the sand explains.
– No wonder
The special event took place on August 14 and 15, and was the hottest month in Greenland for the third time in two months.
According to Defender Temperatures these days were measured to be 18 degrees warmer than normal.
– This is part of the trend we see with heat, so it’s sad and scary. But it’s not surprising to see it warming up, Greenland ice melting and more. If we do not do something serious, it will continue. It also showed last week’s UN climate report.
Melting is still high
Unusually high temperatures led to the melting of ice in large parts of Greenland, and four times larger than the United Kingdom, writes The Guardian.
The area has been hit three times by unusually hot highs this summer, with snow melting in the heights of Greenland – which contains the largest amount of snow.
– Normally the ice melts at the edges, but now it melts more and more, the sand explains.
Cannot be changed
The melting of Greenland ice during the summer is not a new phenomenon, but in recent years this amount has become unusually large.
It is common for some ice to melt in the summer, and then the snow settles there again in the winter. It has always been that way. But now we see it melting so much in the summer that it is not replaced by enough snow in the winter.
By July 31, 100 million tons of ice had melted in Greenland so far this year. Two of the two days at the end of July were 17 of them.
