Record loss of Greenland ice in 2019

Pasadena CA (JPL) Aug 24, 2020
Greenland set a new record for ice loss in 2019, shedding the most mass from its giant ice sheet in any year since at least 1948. The large loss – 532 billion tons -is a stark reversal of the more moderate rate of melt seen in the previous two years. And it exceeds Greenland’s previous record of 464 billion tons, set in 2012. The record melt will likely raise average global sea level by 1.
