Sand from glacial melt could be Greenland's economic salvation

Added: 11.02.2019 16:42 | 19 views | 0 comments

As climate change melts Greenland's glaciers and deposits more river sediment on its shores, an international group of researchers has identified one unforeseen economic opportunity for the Arctic nation: exporting excess sand and gravel abroad, where raw materials for infrastructure are in high demand.
