Greenland: Jakobshavn New World Speed Record, Hundreds of Deeply Incised Underice Valleys Beneath Outlet Glaciers

By Glaciers, Greenland, ice sheets, submarine channel, underice

The North Atlantic is warming and  Greenland’s ice loss has quadrupled in the last 20 years. Warm water is getting under the floating edges of outlet glaciers and causing thinning which in-turn causes the glaciers to speed up. New research has identified another and  possibly new dimension to the increase of outlet glacier flow that…

How do we curb emissions with the way our society has evolved? Really. I mean serious curbing; enough to prevent dangerous climate change? When considering the answer, dangerous climate change must be clearly defined. So, what exactly is dangerous climate change?

Greenland Melt Accelerating

By Greenland

  – Abstract – Greenland’s main outlet glaciers have more than doubled their contribution to global sea level rise over the last decade. Recent work has shown that Greenland’s mass loss is still increasing. Here we show that the ice loss, which has been well-documented over southern portions of Greenland, is now spreading up along…

Greenland Melt Increases – Warmer Ocean Water Melts 100 Times More Than Surface Melt

By Greenland

Two new articles in Nature Geoscience describe greater melting from under ice sea water in fjords.  A team headed by Woods Hole oceanographer Straneo Fiammetta found, as their discovery paper implies, warm subtropical waters circulating beneath Helhiem Glacier in the Sermilik Fjord, East Greenland. the warm waters come from the Atlantic Ocean east of Greenland…
