A new book produced by researchers from institutions including Aarhus University shows photos of changes to Greenland’s ice sheet during the last eighty years. Shown here is a calving glacier that has retreated onto the land. (Photo: Hans Henrik Tholstrup, Natural History Museum of Denmark)
Here is the same calving glacier shown in the colour photo above, but eighty years earlier, when the glacier had not retreated so far. The smaller glacier at left has melted so much during the last eighty years that its front is right up at the top of the mountain. (Photo: Danish Geodata Agency)
