Extreme fieldwork, climate modeling yields new insight into predicting Greenland's melt

A new UCLA-led study reinforces the importance of collaboration in assessing the effects of climate change. The research, published Dec. 5 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, offers new insights about previously unknown factors affecting Greenland's melting ice sheet, and it could ultimately help scientists more accurately predict how the phenomenon could cause sea levels to rise.
