Pace and Extent of Greenland Ice Sheet Growth Highest Since 1981


Data from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) shows Greenland 2022-2023 fall/winter season is off to its fastest growth since 1981.

The DMI reports that the ice loss during the summer months was well below the long-term average for Greenland, leaving its glacier well suited to large ice gains.

From late-September through November 1, Greenland saw the quickest, largest ice expansion for that time period since 1981. (See the graphs from DMI below).
