Parts of the Greenland ice sheet have been shown to destabilise
Has the tipping point been reached soon and what are the implications?
Destabilisation of central-western areas of the ice sheet could be an early warning sign that a tipping point for the Greenland ice sheet will soon be reached. Feedback effects, such as increased snowfall as warmer air absorbs more moisture, could still slow this down,
Arctic ice loss could have an impact on weather in Europe
New studies clarify the connections. Europe could see more snow in the future.
