Ilulissat, Greenland (IMAGE) University of Alaska Fairbanks Caption Ilulissat, known as 'the city of icebergs' sits adjacent to Greenland's Ilulissat Glacier, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Such outlet glaciers lead ice sheet loss in Greenland. New research shows that if this loss continues at its current rate, it could result in an ice-free Greenland by the year 3000 and 24 feet of global sea level rise.
