The Greenland ice sheet losses have accelerated dramatically since the mid-1990s, and the loss of more than seven times as much ice each year, according to a new study.

The new assessment comes from an international group of 89 scientists, who have been assessed with satellite observations of a 26-year-old period of time.

According to their study, published Tuesday in the journal Nature, with Greenland’s contribution to the total sea-level rise, it is now in what is considered to be a pessimistic projection of the future.

This will mean an additional 7 cm (2.7 inch) away from the ocean, a rise that could be expected by the end of the century, is just off Greenland, according to the experts in the field.

“The simple formula that has been around the planet, six million people have been placed in a flood situation, for every meter of sea-level rise. So, when you hear about one inch of rise, it does have an impact,” Andy Shepherd of Leeds University, told BBC News.

The group of scientists, reanalyzed the data from the 11 satellite missions operated from 1992 until the end of 2018 — are looking to repeat the messurements of the antarctic ice sheet, the thickness of the flow and the force of gravity, BBC News reports.

Greenland lies between the arctic ocean and the north Atlantic ocean, is the largest island in the world. The massive ice sheet that covers the island is no more than a foot thick in the middle of it.
