Global warming could release radioactive waste stored in an abandoned Cold War-era U.S. military camp deep under Greenlands ice caps if a thaw continues to spread in coming decades, scientists said on Friday.

.

Camp Century was built in northwest Greenland in 1959 as part of U.S. research into the feasibility of nuclear missile launch sites in the Arctic, the University of Zurich said in a statement.

.

Staff left gallons of fuel and an unknown amount of low-level radioactive coolant there when the base shut down in 1967 on the assumption it would be entombed forever, according to the university.

Climate change could remobilize the abandoned hazardous waste believed to be buried forever beneath the Greenland ice sheet, the university said of findings published this week in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Its a new breed of political challenge we have to think about, lead author William Colgan, a climate and glacier scientist at York University, said in a statement.

.

If the ice melts, the camps infrastructure, including any remaining biological, chemical, and radioactive wastes, could re-enter the environment and potentially disrupt nearby ecosystems, the University of Zurich said.
