COPENHAGEN (AFP) Greenlands ice cap, which covers more than 80 percent of the island, is melting faster than expected because of global warming, a Danish researcher said on Monday.
The 1.8-million-kilometre (695,000-square-mile) ice cap, which accounts for 10 percent of the planets fresh water is losing about 257 cubic kilometers (62 cubic miles) of ice per year.
In 2080, it is expected to lose 465 cubic kilometers (111 cubic miles) per year, according to new estimates presented by a Danish-US team of scientists at the International Research Center in Fairbanks, Alaska.
The net loss in 2080 would be 81 percent greater than today and would cause sea levels to rise by 107 milimeters (4.2 inches, the teams head researcher Sebastian Mermild said in a statement received in Copenhagen. Satellite observations show that the global water level has since 1003 risen by three millimeters j(0.11 inches) per year, or at a much more accelerated pace than during the last century when it rose by 1.7 millimeter (0.06 inches) per year, he said.
The ice caps melting season beat a new record in 2007, corresponding to a loss of 50 percent of the ices total surface. And this record will not be the last one, he warned.
The ice melt at the end of the 2070s will rise to 66 percent, or about 1,204 million square kilometers, said Mernild, adding that the melting process was occurring at faster rate than previously predicted.
The research teams calculations, based on climate models and the UN climate panels predicted scenarios, showed that the average air temperature )in Greenland) will rise by some 2.7 degrees by the end of the century, he said.
56. What type of text is this?
a. a newspaper report b. a research chapter
c. a magazine article d. a minute of the meeting
57. According to the text, all of the following are true, EXCEPT .
a. Global warming is the main cause of Greenlands ice melt.
b. Many of the worlds coastlines could soon be flooded by rising seas.
b. Greenlands ice cap melting is now a real possibility.
d. Greenlands ice sheet is moving faster than expected.
58. What would be the best title for this text?
a. The Rapid Melting of Greenlands Ice Cap
b. The Awareness of Natural Disaster in Greenland
