The melting ice makes the sea around Greenland less saline 15.10.2017 DNA: Opinion
Melting ice is causing coastal waters in Greenland to become less saline, which may in turn affect marine life as well as the global ocean currents that keep Europe warm, a study warns. For the first time, scientists from Aarhus University in Denmark have unveiled the long-term impact of the melting of the Greenland ice sheet. The observed increase in freshwater content will affect the conditions in all Greenland fjords, researchers said. Over the years, the dramatic meltdown of ice in the Arctic Ocean has received great attention and is easy to observe via satellite images. Also, glaciers have been observed to melt and retreat and the researchers know that today's meltdown of the Greenland ice sheet has more than doubled compared with the period 1983 -2003. How the increased influx of fresh water will affect the marine environment is, however, largely unknown. Now, unique annual measurements made within the framework of the 'Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring Program' since 2003 in Northeast Greenland tell ...
