To learn how ocean water is melting glaciers, NASA’s Oceans Melting Greenland mission extensively surveyed the coastline of the world’s largest island. The airborne mission found that Greenland’s glaciers that empty into the ocean, like Apusiaajik Glacier shown here, are at greater risk of rapid ice loss than previously understood.

为了了解海水是如何融化冰川的,NASA的海洋融化格陵兰岛任务广泛地调查了世界上最大岛屿的海岸线。这项空中任务发现,像图中所示的阿普斯阿吉克冰川一样,流入海洋的格陵兰岛冰川面临着比之前理解的更快的冰川流失风险。
