Mapping Greenland's ice in 3D

Mapping Greenland's ice in 3D

(3:36) Peering into the thousands of frozen layers inside Greenland's ice sheet is like looking back in time. Each layer provides a record of not only snowfall and melting events, but what the Earth's climate was like at the dawn of civilisation, or during the last ice age, or during an ancient period of warmth similar to the one we are experiencing today. Using radar data from NASA's Operation IceBridge, scientists have built the first-ever comprehensive map of the layers deep inside the ice sheet.

Why do scientists need to know how the ice is going to respond in the "current global warming" when the boreme scientists claim all the ice is melting. The ice will be gone just like the ice disappeared during the eemian period. I just saved the scientists billions.
