Climate change

Rapid climate change causes Greenland's bedrock to rise forming small islands

The impacts of global climate change are becoming evident on Greenland's bedrock, which is rising at an increasing rate, reshaping the country's landscape. New research from DTU sheds light on this phenomenon.

With 61 GNSS measuring stations, like this in Northwestern Greenland, it is possible to measure how the land rises when the ice cap above melts and release pressure on the bedrock beneath. (Photo: DTU Space)
