A media release related to the publication of the 13th edition of The
Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World erroneously claim that the
Greenland Ice Sheet has lost 15% of its ice cover since publication
of the last atlas 12 years ago.
The press release is making headline news around the world:
A group of glaciologists at the Scott Polar Research Institute
believes it is prudent and urgent to correct this mistake.
We hope you will consider printing the attached letter in either The
Times or The Sunday Times. The letter is accompanied by a figure,
which clearly demonstrates the error in the Atlas.
