  • A Siberian heatwave and an early melting season in Greenland are worrying developments as summer approaches in the Arctic, researchers said on Friday.
  • The start of the melting season in Greenland — defined as when the melting extends over five percent of the ice sheet — was registered on May 13.
  • Greenland’s melting ice has contributed to one centimetre of sea-level rises since 2002.
