The study, published in the scientific journal The Cryosphere, found that winter (defined as either October to March or from December to February)...
A giant crater, just over 22-miles wide, has just been discovered beneath Greenland's ice. According to NASA it may be the result of a massive meteorite crashing into the Earth.
