Glaciology: Greenland ice loss underestimated

Greenland's glaciers could be shrinking more in response to climate warming than scientists had thought.Shfaqat Khan of the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby and his colleagues used data from a network of Global Positioning System stations across Greenland (pictured) to measure the rise
