Might be good for an update to our ice-melt articles.
Thanks for the news tip.
Another new report that may be of interest, co-sponsored by AMAP:
State of the Arctic Coast 2010
"This suggests that Greenland’s contribution to global sea level rise, even during multidecadal conditions as warm as during the past several years, is relatively modest."
From the AMAP report, endorsed by Alley:
"The AMAP report said melting glaciers and ice sheets worldwide have become the biggest contributor to sea level rise. Greenland's ice sheet alone accounted for more than 40 percent of the 0.12 inches (3.1 millimeters) of sea-level rise observed annually between 2003 and 2008, AMAP said."
Knappenburger should not arrive to that conclusion, he's looking at just one piece of the picture.
