In 2019, broke all records with 586 billion tonnes of ice is melting. And for the study, Greenland lost a record amount of ice.
But, how does the melting ice gives affect India? As information, India’s average temperature is already up by 0.7 degrees Celsius between 1901due to greenhouse gas emissions.
And the research predicts in 2100 is expected to rise by approximately 4.4 degrees Celsius.
And it can make the rise in sea level is also something India needs to be worried about.
The melting in Greenland more than 140 trillion gallons of water that have come from the ice. If we compared since 2003, more than the yearly average loss of 259 billion tons (235 billion metric tons), said a study in Nature Communications Earth & Environment.
An author Ingo Sasgen, a geoscientist at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany told as quoted News24xx.com from TOI, “Not only is the Greenland ice sheet melting, but it’s melting at a faster and faster pace.”
As information, last year’s Greenland melt added 0.06 inches (1.5 millimeters) to global sea-level rise.
