Abstract  The discovery of the extreme melt event across almost the entire surface of the Greenland ice sheet is presented. Introduction  The Greenland ice sheet GIS holds a massive amount of water equivalent to 6—7 m of contemporary sea level rise SLR if it were to melt completely [ Cuffey and Marshall , ].
The extreme melt across the Greenland ice sheet in 2012
Figure 1 Open in figure viewer PowerPoint. In the red areas, two or more of the satellites detected melt while in the orange areas only one satellite detected melt. No melt was detected in the white areas, black indicates insufficient data, green and dark grey show land, and light grey represents ocean. Field Verification  To verify the extreme melt events observed by the satellites, we have compiled temperature measurements from a number of weather stations as well as field observations of snow and ice conditions. Figure 2 Open in figure viewer PowerPoint. The inset shows the plot of temperature at every minute for 28—30 July The red arrows mark the peak temperature time on 29 July Discussions and Conclusion  A likely cause of this extreme melt event was an anomalous ridge of warm air, acting as a strong heat dome that became stagnant over Greenland.

Other factors that prevent women from receiving or seeking care during pregnancy and childbirth are:. To improve maternal health, barriers that limit access to quality maternal health services must be identified and addressed at all levels of the health system. WHO works to contribute to the reduction of maternal mortality by increasing research evidence, providing evidence-based clinical and programmatic guidance, setting global standards, and providing technical support to Member States.
In addition, WHO advocates for more affordable and effective treatments, designs training materials and guidelines for health workers, and supports countries to implement policies and programmes and monitor progress. The Strategy is a road map for the post agenda as described by the Sustainable Development Goals and seeks to end all preventable deaths of women, children and adolescents and create an environment in which these groups not only survive, but thrive, and see their environments, health and wellbeing transformed.
American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, , — Lancet, , — Lancet Global Health. Report Lancet Glob Health. New York: United Nations; Maternal mortality 16 February Key facts Every day, approximately women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. Maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities. Young adolescents face a higher risk of complications and death as a result of pregnancy than other women. Skilled care before, during and after childbirth can save the lives of women and newborn babies.
Between and , as part of the Sustainable Development Goals, the target is to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per live births. Maternal mortality is unacceptably high.
