    Description“This story is about water masses moving from one place to another. When ice melts in Greenland and moves to the sea”, Riva explains, “there’s less weight over the land, so Greenland comes up. But it isn’t just Greenland, the regions surrounding it also lift up. This is something that has been known for a long time. But such a slow and large-scale vertical land motion, as seen by GPS stations moving up or down, is something that we’ve been only able to measure for the last 20 years or so through satellite observations.”
