Norway's snow at risk of melting

(MENAFN) A report said Norway might lose some of its main tourist attractions as its icebergs are in danger to melt away.

Giant glaciers like Jostedal Glacier and Folgefonna Glacier can be almost gone in 80 years, the report added.

Senior engineer from the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) said: "2018 was a very bad year for Norwegian glaciers. There was no mass surplus on any of those that we measure."

A warm year in 2018 showed one of the biggest declines since the measurements started, as the glaciers retreated 33 meters on average.
