On the world’s largest island, Greenland, which is around 80% covered in ice, a considerable amount of glacier has melted in the last two days, according to reports. 

In fact, a vast portion of Greenland’s ice sheet has melted in the last two days, according to Polar Portal, a Danish website that monitors the ice sheet. 

Greenland, the northern hemisphere’s largest ice sheet, lost more than 8.5 billion tons of ice on July 28 alone, according to the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI). 

According to published data, the island lost 8.4 billion tons of ice mass the previous day, with the quantity of ice melting in two days covering the US state of Florida with water at a height of 10 centimeters.
