Greenland, "Green Country" of the Vikings, has a misleading name. This autonomous country of Denmark, fout times larger than France, is actually covered with a thick layer of ice in summer or winter. Ice is wrongly considered as an inert mass, but Greenland ice is heading toward the sea under its own weight. Nowadays this movement tends to accelerate sharply, which will have an impact upon the sea levels.
