Greenland Ice ... or not ice?


On the broad white expanse of Greenland small groups of researchers from around the world looking for evidence of the impact of global warming on the ice of Greenland. They measure the movement of glaciers, the density of snow cover, ice thickness, and more, trying to understand how and when the snow will melt. Living in Greenland Eskimos have witnessed a rapidly changing landscape. In Inuit language there are many words for ice in all its forms, and his disappearance affects their lives. Photographer "Associated Press" Brennan Linsley spent some time on the Arctic island, taking pictures of the researchers, residents, and ice, ice, ice.

He said that 20 years ago, when the winter ice was too thin to withstand the cart with the dogs, the seal hunt has lost its priority. (AP Photo / Brennan Linsley)

Some hunters, their dogs were fed through the winter production, simply could not contain them, so they had to shoot them. (AP Photo / Brennan Linsley)

The whales have long been the main component of Inuit life in Greenland, where the regular hunting of them continues to this day. The Arctic Circle is warming twice as fast than the rest of the world, making ice, on which depend the lives of many Greenlanders, melting with each passing day more quickly.
