The Greenland ice sheet is likely to be more vulnerable to global warming than previously thought. The temperature threshold for melting the ice sheet completely is in the range of 0.8 to 3.2° Celsius global warming, with a best estimate of 1.6° above pre-industrial levels, shows a study by scientists from the Potsdam Institute for […]
