Press Release 06-050
Arctic, Antarctic Melting May Raise Sea Levels Faster than Expected

Back to article | Note about images

Computers say the last melting of Greenland's Ice sheet occured under conditions like today's.

This graphic shows the height of the Greenland ice sheet at present (left) and during the last interglacial (about 130,000 years ago), as simulated by the NCAR-based Community Climate System Model coupled with an ice-sheet model.
