To comment upon the impact the tsunami might leave, experts cited examples of landslide-induced tsunamis in the past in Alaska and Greenland.
Researchers are of the opinion that countries around the world need to take action to reduce emissions, slow decline of ice sheets and mitigate sea-level rise.
'If COVID-19 doesn't kill us, climate change will': At annual UN meet, world leaders warn of 'environmental Armageddon'
The postponement of the UN climate summit hasn't stopped countries, from slowly sinking island nations to parched African ones, from speaking out.
Calculating the Antarctic sheet was trickier as the East Antarctic ice sheet can gain mass due to global warming, as warmer temperatures cause increased snowfall.
Massive chunk of Greenland's ice caps has broken off, falls into the sea; evidence of rapid climate change
The ice came off a fjord called Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden and is around 110 square kilometres big.
According to the researchers, before 2000 — 420 gigatonnes of ice were discharged annually. In the years that followed, the rate increased to 480 gigatonnes of ice discharged annually.
Greenland glacier melting crosses 'tipping point', won't recover if global warming ended today: Study
Reports of the ice melt in the Arctic – which is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet – have multiplied in recent years.
Normally ice reflects more than 80 percent of the sun's radiation, however, because the algae absorb the heat and the ice starts to melt faster.
We knew there had to be a greater-good reason for the Centre's contentious decision to scrap Article 370 in conflict-ridden Jammu and Kashmir.
Donald Trump says meeting with Denmark's prime minister cancelled as she does not want to sell Greenland to the United States
Donald Trump announced that he was postponing a planned meeting with Denmark's prime minister because she does not want to sell Greenland to the United States.
President Donald Trump said Sunday the idea of buying Greenland from Denmark has been discussed within his administration because of the strategic benefits for the US
The scientists want to know whether the melting is being caused more by warm air or warm seawater.
The Greenland ice sheet has lost 240 gigatons (240 billion metric tons) this year.
Between 1991 and 2015, Greenland's ice sheet has added about 0.02 inches per year to sea level.
Global sea levels could rise by 2 metres displacing around 180 mn people by 2100 says latest UN study
"A sea-level rise of this magnitude would clearly have profound consequences for humanity," the report says.
Greenland's single-largest frozen freshwater reserve — over 1.5 kilometres thick — is melting early this year.
The Jakobshavn glacier around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning nearly 130 feet.
The crater is believed to have hit 12,000 years ago and is among the 25 largest known on Earth.
In May 2016 the scientists mapped the crater and the overlying ice over the Hiawatha Glacier.
