More weird climatic stuff going on… though I have two questions:
- Did they really have satellites in 1889?
- How can something that happened before be “unprecedented”?
Interesting topic – but poorly written.
Three satellites show what NASA calls unprecedented melting of the ice sheet that blankets the island, starting on July 8 and lasting four days. Most of the thick ice remains. While some ice usually melts during the summer, what was unusual was that the melting happened in a flash and over a widespread area.
