Greenland’s Ice Cores Analysis adds to Historical Record and may provide Glimpse into the Future of Climate

January 25, 2013 – The International North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling (NEEM) project results indicate that melting of Antarctic ice sheet may have contributed to sea level rise more than melting of the Greenland ice sheet some 100,000 years ago. A new study that provides surprising details on changes in Earth’s climate from more than 100,000 years ago indicates that the last interglacial (the period between “ice ages”) was warmer than previously thought and may be a good analog for future climate, as greenhouse gases increase in the atmosphere and…
