Greenland: A Laboratory For The Symptoms Of Global Warming

GLACIAL ICE SHEET, GREENLAND - JULY 15: Tim Elam ,Principal Physicist, EIS Department APL-UW, works on deploying the Ice Diver, which if successful will melt its way through the ice with electrical heating, the hope is that the device will allow scientists to put sensors at the base of ice sheets to measure melt water pressures on July 15, 2013 on the Glacial Ice Sheet, Greenland. As the sea levels around the globe rise, researchers affiliated with the National Science Foundation and other organizations are studying the phenomena of the melting glaciers and its long-term ramifications. The warmer temperatures that have had an effect on the glaciers in Greenland also have altered the ways in which the local populace farm, fish, hunt and even travel across land. In recent years, sea level rise in places such as Miami Beach has led to increased street flooding and prompted leaders such as New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to propose a $19.5 billion plan to boost the citys capacity to withstand future extreme weather events by, among other things, devising mechanisms to withstand flooding.
