Inland ice sheet deep within Greenland is now moving faster towards the coast

A comparison of new GPS measurements with unique 65-year-old data shows that the ice 100 km inland in Greenland is moving faster now.

Scientists have conducted new GPS measurements inland at Sermeq Kujalleq in western Greenland that reveal that parts of the ice sheet are moving 5-15 per cent faster now than 65 years ago.
