DNA Sample Suggests Greenland was Much Warmer During Last Ice Age
Ancient DNA samples recovered from the bottom of a two-kilometre thick ice sheet in Greenland
has shown that the island was much warmer at some point during the last Ice Age than previously believed .

What is really happening to the Greenland icecap?

ice cap has been melting, it is still not clear how much this is contributing to rising s...
