Like so many other glaciers around the world, rising temperatures and reduced snowfall mean that this ancient icecap is melting.  In one of the most recent reports from the Icelandic government's Committee on Climate Change, it warns that by the next century, Iceland's glaciers will no longer exist. Vatnajökull is estimated to be melting at a rate of one meter per year and many of its outlet glaciers are melting at an even higher rate.
