New research has found that a large Greenland glacier which has once been one of Earth's fastest shrinking, is now rising again. glacier located on the west coast of the island
NASA said that Jakobshavn was the fastest and fastest collapsed glacier of Greenland over the last 20 years. During this time, it is the only major source of weight loss in the Greenland ice sheet
Due to the size and activity of the glacier, researchers have used it to predict the rise in sea level in the world. NASA scientists and other organizations have watched Jakobshavn for many years.
Researchers participating in the survey say that the glacier has suffered great thickening since 201
Ala Hazander is a glacier scientist at NASA's Reactive Movement Laboratory in Pasadena, California. He helped guide the study.
"We did not believe at first," said Hazlander. "We have a lot of assumptions that Jakobshavn will just go on as it has been in the last 20 years
The research team has registered cooling water near Jakobshavn for three years in a row
Jason Box is an ice scholar and Climate with the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland He was not part of the study He told the Associated Press that the new discovery of Jakobshavn was surprising because it moved in the other direction for so long
