Greenland's ice sheet surface melts over Sereval Days

Nearly all of the ice sheet covering Greenland's surface melted over several days in July - something scientists have never seen before.

Images from Nasa satellites have shown the largest melting since they began watching the area 30 years ago.

Even Greenland's coldest and highest place, Summit Station, experienced melting.

On average in the summer, only about half of the surface of Greenland's ice sheet naturally melts. Source
