Quotes scientist Marco Tedesco.
"Granted, with an early season melt event like this, it’s important to emphasize that total mass loss is likely to be low, says Marco Tedesco, a Greenland expert at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University.
“This sort of event, early in the season, has a negligible effect on the mass loss, because of the water refreeze,” Tedesco says. However, it could be very important for later in the melt season, he adds, because of the way an early melt sets the stage for future events." view article
