  1. The melting of the Greenland ice sheet due to climate change is having an impact on ocean circulation and rising sea levels, according to new studies from university researchers across North America. Dixon said that when ice melts, it deposits fresh water into the ocean that dilutes the salt in the North Atlantic.

  2. Greenland's push to extract rare earth metals will remain a contentious political issue for years to come because the mining also produces uranium as a by-product, the nation's finance minister told Reuters. Greenland has been opening up to foreign companies with hopes that its vast resources in metals and minerals, including rare earths, would help finance its ambition to become independent ...

  4. Movement of Greenland ice during past 9,000 years mapped

    New York, Feb 5 (IANS) Mapping for the first time how the Greenland's ice sheet has moved over time, scientists have found that ice in the interior is moving more slowly towards the edges than it has, on average, during the past 9,000 years. The findings, which researchers said do not change the fact that the ice sheet is losing mass overall and contributing to sea level rise, were published in...

  8. Not only is Greenland's melting ice sheet adding huge amounts of water to the oceans, it could also be unleashing 400,000 metric tons of phosphorus every year -- as much as the mighty Mississippi River releases into the Gulf of Mexico, according to a new study. Phosphorus is an essential nutrient that feeds plankton at the base of the ocean food web.

  10. Greenland ice sheet releasing large concentrations of phosphorus

    IANS via Yahoo Maktoob NewsFeb 04 05:20 AM

    London, Feb 4 (IANS) Glacial meltwater has been known to contain phosphorus, but as Greenland ice sheet melts, it could be releasing more of phosphorus -- a key nutrient that can enrich waters of the oceans, potentially stimulating the growth of marine food chain, finds a new study. The total phosphorus concentrations found in the meltwater of the Leverett glacier was 10 times greater than ...
