North American heat melts Greenland

According to Prof. Jason Box, the new Arctic Basecamp “Pan-Arctic Alert System” (PASS) and field data have round the clock melting in Greenland at high elevations on the southern part of the ice sheet and that’s very abnormal. 2023 Greenland surface melting is at record high for the southern ice sheet and overall is currently ranked 2nd after the record ice loss year 2012.

The melting is connected to the 2023 North American heat wave. The jet stream is dragging extreme heat from North America and picking up additional heat from record high North Atlantic sea surface temperatures.
