On location in Greenland during record melt year

Map

It is a record breaking year for Greenland ice sheet surface melting. In July almost all of the ice sheet was melting on the surface, this has not been observed since satellite observations started some 30 years ago. Asa and Samiah are on location in Greenland monitoring streams to understand drivers and implications of this event. See NASA’s press release for more info about this melt event.
