До какво води топенето на гренландските ледници

The Greenland ice sheet has been melting at an increasing rate over the past few decades, contributing to global sea level rise and possibly the slowing of the Gulf Stream current in the North Atlantic.
Glaciers that end in the ocean have seen some of the fastest rates of retreat, since comparatively mild ocean waters are destabilizing the ice from below, speeding the ice's one-way trip into the sea.
Now comes new evidence that the Greenland coast continues to transform regional maps, with a new island created at the ocean boundary between the Steenstrup Glacier and Kier Glacier in northwest Greenland.
