Greenland Gains Huge Amounts Of Ice For The Second Year In A Row

Summer is over, and Greenland’s surface has gained 510 billion tons of ice over the past year – about 40% above normal. The surface mass budget is snow/ice accumulation minus melt. It does not include ice loss caused by glaciers flowing to the sea, which is very difficult to measure, and is driven by processes which have little to do with the current climate.

Last year Greenland gained a little more ice, about 50% above normal.
