Ilulissat, Greenland - The Ilulissat glacier in Greenland, a United Nations heritage site considered one of the wonders of the world, has shrunk by over 10 kilometres in just a few years, in one of the most alarming examples of global warming in the Arctic region.

"We are witnesses to one of the most striking examples of climate change in the Arctic," American expert Robert Corell said during a recent helicopter flight over the glacier.

The lower extremity of the glacier "has receded by more than 10 kilometres in two or three years after having been relatively stable since the 1960s", he said.


Corell was in charge of the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, a 1 400-page report written by more than 250 scientists and published in November 2004 which sounded alarm bells for the region.

The report warned that less than a century from now, the Arctic ice could melt completely during the summer, threatening many species and the lifestyle of the indigenous Inuit population.

Corell, a senior fellow with the American Meteorological Society in Washington DC, took 22 environment ministers and other officials from around the world, meeting in Ilulissat last week for a conference on global warming, on a tour of the glacier to see the effects first-hand.

"We can't find any more concrete example of Arctic warming, which is twice as fast as in any other part of the world," Corell told reporters.

He said the glacier shrank by seven kilometres in a 12-month period from 2002 to 2003.
