Personal History

You can't miss the Greenland Sumut formation in its entirety. It's among the major tourist attractions in Greenland, and is a sight not to be missed. It's very well connected with other towns in northern Scotland, so you will find a comprehensive tour. You may even have a chance to visit the ice era museum and to observe that the frozen landscape of the region. However, it is really possible for every person to reach the ice age museum in the Greenland city of Ingersund.

The ice age was a important period in Earth history. Long before humans appeared on this planet, the planet was populated by big glaciers. These days, we know that these glaciers did not disappear, but they have gradually thinned out and that's the reason why the ice round the edge of the tectonic plates has started to melt. This thinning of the ice hockey is taking place at a rapid pace, and scientists have been quite certain that this process will accelerate to a very high rate in the coming years.

One of the most-studied consequence of this phenomenon is that the volume of the Arctic Ocean will start to increase. This will result in a rise in the sea level and will eventually result in drastic climate changes across the Arctic area. If you want to go there and observe the ice retreat, the ocean bed is an perfect spot to see.

Greenland is a country with a tropical climate, which explains why almost all of the ice shaped there is white. But, you'll find green patches in places in which the white ice is starting to melt. You can push these ice stains and shoot pictures of them. A trip to the iceberg roller coasters may also help you understand the way the melt season functions.

The Greenland ice sheet is considered to be the third largest in the entire planet, and it's gradually melting. Since the warming process goes on, the ice will slowly reduce in depth. If this process starts, the elevation of the ice will probably decrease. In fact, the melt will quicken, and this will cause additional problems for the people residing in the coastal areas. It's important to prevent global warming from attaining a critical level.

Greenland is an excellent destination for your journeys. The climate is mild, the scene is magnificent as well as the transportation network is well developed. You can start your preparations by consulting with an ice travel agency, and you can also check out some books regarding the Polar Regions.
