GOODBYE to Greenland's Ice Sheet. 20% of the worlds ice at stake.

Its all over for greenlands ice sheet.

gravity mass measuring satellites, and confirmed by GPS show accelerating reduction.

The data from the GPS and GRACE provided the researchers with monthly averages of crustal uplift caused by ice-mass loss. The team combined the uplift measured by GRACE over United Kingdom-sized chunks of Greenland while the GPS receivers monitor crustal uplift on scales of just tens of miles. "Our results show that the ice loss, which has been well documented over southern portions of Greenland, is now spreading up along the northwest coast," said Shfaqat Abbas Khan, lead author on a paper that will appear in Geophysical Research Letters.

 note how the rate of decline in ice utterly overwealms seasonal variation.
