Iceland is losing its ice
Today’s Video of the Day from the USGS shows the rapid retreat of ice across Iceland over the last five decades.
For example, the OK Glacier in western Iceland had lost so much of its ice by 2014 that it was no longer considered a glacier.
The same year, glaciologists concluded that the current rate of melting will wipe out all of the country’s ice except its highest elevation glaciers by the year 2200.
