Follow ➡️ @cnnclimate ➡️ Greenland is experiencing its most significant melting event of the year as temperatures in the Arctic surge. Greenland lost more than 8.5 billion tons of surface mass on Tuesday, and 18.4 billion tons since Sunday, according to the Denmark Meteorological Institute. That would be enough to cover the entire state of Florida in two inches of water. While this week’s total ice loss is not as extreme as a similar event in 2019 — a record melt year — the area of the ice sheet that’s melting is larger. Tap the link in our bio to learn more.
