The Ecosystems of Greenland

The emissions of CO2 in Greenland have been drastically different over time. In the year 1976, the total amount of CO2 was around 200,000 Metric Tons in Greenland. However, in 1990, levels of CO2 dropped down to about 50,000 Metric Tons. As of today, the level of CO2 in Greenland is 150,000 Metric Tons.

What Satellite Imagery Tells Us About Methane Emissions in

What Satellite Imagery Tells Us About Methane Emissions in Greenland. Earth.Org analysed satellite data to assess the concentration of methane emissions in the Greenland ice sheet (GiS) in July 2019. The GiS covers an area of roughly 1,7million square km; together with Antarctica’s ice sheet, it contains more than 99% of the world’s fresh water. Most of this water is frozen in masses of snow and ice and as greenhouse gases build, the oceans absorb 93% of the excess heat those gases trap.

Greenland’s Ice Sheet and Climate Change Policy, Part 2 of 2

Aug 19, 2019 · As the authors explain on page 49 in this paper, “Cumulative CO 2 emissions in RCP8.5 amount to about 7300 GtCO 2 over the course of the entire century,” where “Gt” is gigaton, or one billion tons, of carbon dioxide. Thus, total human emissions over the 21 st century in this high-end scenario amount to some 7.3 trillion tons of carbon
