The Greenland Ice Sheet has encountered record softening as of late and is liable to help generously to ocean level climb and to conceivable changes in sea course later on. The zone of the sheet that encounters liquefying has expanded by around 16% between 1979 (when estimations began) and 2002 (latest information). The territory of liquefying in 2002 broke all past records.[5] The quantity of frigid seismic tremors at the Helheim Glacier and the northwest Greenland glacial masses expanded generously somewhere around 1993 and 2005. In 2006, evaluated month to month changes in the mass of Greenland's ice sheet recommend that it is dissolving at a rate of around 239 cubic kilometers (57 cu mi) every year. A later study, taking into account reprocessed and enhanced information somewhere around 2003 and 2008, reports a normal pattern of 195 cubic kilometers (47 cu mi) every year.[7] These estimations originated from the US space org's GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellite, propelled in 2002, as reported by BBC.
