Greenland losing ice faster over past 10 years: Experts Updated: 2019-12-11 13:29:52 KST

A group of scientists say the ice in Greenland has been melting faster over the past ten years due to rising temperatures.
The findings by a team of 89 polar experts, published in the journal Nature, show that between 1992 and 2018, Greenland lost 3.8 trillion tons of ice the equivalent of a rise in the sea level of around 10 millimeters.
They claim the sea level is expected to rise an additional seven centimeters by the end of the century from Greenland alone.
The scientists say this will threaten millions of people living in low-lying coastal regions.
