Observatory at the highest point in Greenland where it rained for the first time in the history of observation (provided by the National Science Foundation)

[Collaboration in Washington]The National Snow and Ice Data Center announced on the 14th that it rained instead of snow for the first time in the history of observation at the highest point of the ice sheet (elevation 3216 m) covering Greenland, which is mostly in the Arctic region. The Washington Post said, “I can’t think of it without the effects of global warming.”

According to announcements and reports, the highest point has been an observatory since 1989. In Greenland, on the 14th to 16th of this month, warm and moist air entered from the south due to the pressure distribution, and it rained extensively. Possibly the heaviest rainfall since 1950. The melting of the ice sheet has also progressed. Melting the Greenland ice sheet leads to sea level rise.
