Iceland has the smallest ice disappearsIcelandic glacier Snayfedlsyekyudl now reduced and retreating so fast that it may completely disappear within a few decades.

The representative of the Icelandic Met Office says Thomas Johannesson, this process is due to unusually warm weather in the last decade. According to recent measurements, the glacier has decreased in the ten years to a height of five feet, and in some places, "lost" on 30-40 meters. At the beginning of the last century it was twice.

Johannesson sure that the glacier will disappear completely within a few decades if the climate will not change, according Mixnews.
