NYU Abu Dhabi researchers find warm ocean water, exacerbated by warmer air, is causing rapid melt of one of Greenland's largest glaciers

Abu Dhabi, August 22, 2019:  A team of researchers from NYU Abu Dhabi’s Center for Global Sea Level Change, supported by the Office of Polar Programs of the USA National Science Foundation, have found that unusually warm ocean water is causing rapid melt at the Greenland outlet glacier Helheim, one of the largest in the region.
