On the territory of Greenland, scientists have recorded the largest melting of glaciers for this summer. During one day, 11 billion tons of ice had descended into the ocean.
The melting of the ice cover in Greenland occurs annually from the beginning of June to the end of July.
However, this year the process of global warming has passed all frames, and the melting of glaciers has reached a critical scale.
Only in July, the ice cover in Greenland decreased by 197 billion tons of ice, which is equivalent to 80 million Olympic swimming pools.
Abnormal heat, which has been characteristic of Europe for the last few weeks, also reached the Arctic. Scientists have recorded here the most ambitious melting of glaciers over the past 50 years.
