Greenland ice melt is changing the shape of its coastline

Rapid melt is reshaping coastal Greenland, potentially altering the human and animal ecosystems along the country’s coast. 

New research published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface on Oct. 27 finds that the ice retreat in Greenland has changed the way glaciers flow and where they dump into the sea. These changes could impact ice loss from Greenland in the future, the researchers wrote.
