Greenland glaciers either stable or growing

“In 2018, 26 of Greenland’s 47 largest glaciers were either stable or grew in size. Overall, the 47 glaciers advanced by +4.1  km² during 2018.  Of the 6 largest glaciers, 4 grew while 2 retreated. Since 2012, ice loss has been “minor” to “modest” due to the dramatic melting slowdown. Summer average temperatures for 2018 were lower than the 2008-2018 average by more than one standard deviation. Since 2000, the extent of the non-snow-covered areas of Greenland has increased by 500 km² per year.” click here
