Tehran (KNA) - Greenland has gone through an "unprecedented" period of ice loss within the last two decades.


The Grace satellites revealed a four-fold increase in mass being lost from Greenland's ice sheet from 2003-2013.

The study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that ice loss subsequently stalled for 12-18 months.

The research reveals how different areas of Greenland might contribute to sea-level rise in future.
