‘Millions in coastal communities’ threatened by algae growth on Greenland Ice Sheet

Posted: July 25, 2017 in news

Algae growth could impact Sea Level rise….for the worse.
Warming trends contribute to increased algae growth on the ice, which changes the reflectivity of the ice to absorb far greater amounts of heat from the sun, thereby increasing…possibly exponentially…the ice melt. Not good news for low lying islands and coastal areas worldwide. Not good news at all.
