The Danish National Research for Geogenetics at the University of Copenhagen’s researchers have discovered Artic Ocean ice levels were lower than 50 percent of today’s levels. The study’s results were based on findings from the coast of northern Greenland. The researchers’ technique makes determining ice level patterns from thousands of years ago doable. Research team leader, Svend Funder said, “When ice disappears in one area, it may accumulate in another.”
The team’s findings will be published in the journal, Science.
