- EN - NL- FR
Sediments taken from beneath an ancient ice core reveal that at least 20% of Greenland was green 416,000 years ago, corresponding to a recent past on the geological scale. The study, published in the journal Science, was carried out by an international team of scientists, including the Laboratoire de Glaciologie of the Université Libre de Bruxelles. It contributes to a better understanding of the impact of the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, and strengthens future projections of sea-level rise
