NASA Greenland loses ice to the sea mainly through two processes the shedding of icebergs from glaciers that run into the sea and surface melt runoff Rising temperatures can’t fully explain the ongoing melting of the Greenland ice sheet. A new project looks at how microorganisms are changing the reflectivity of the ice sheet, helping it warm and melt.
