Greenland ice cores reveal warm climate of the past

In the period between 130,000 and 115,000 years ago, Earth’s climate was warmer than today. But how much warmer was it and what did the warming do to global sea levels? – as we face global warming in the future, the answer to these questions is becoming very important. New research from the NEEM ice core drilling project in Greenland shows that the period was warmer than previously thought.

The international research project is led by researchers from Center for Ice and Climate and the Niels Bohr Institute and the very important results are published in the prestigious scientific journal, Nature.
