Ice Waves — Increased Greenland Ice and Melt Discharge Waves from 2010 and 2012

By Greenland, ice sheet, Impacts, Sea Level Rise, underice

Ice Waves — The most fantastic climate science of last week (that crossed my desk): This work evaluates  a new discovery of melt waves of increased ice and water discharge in the Greenland melt years of 2010 and 2012. At one glacier (Rinks,) the peak monthly increased ice and water discharge was about equal to…

Ice Sheets Behaving Badly

By Sea Level Rise, Uncategorized

The most recent discoveries in climate science bear little resemblance to what we hear in the media. Greenland’s melt in 2012 for example has been widely advertised in the media as just another weather event, similar to many in the past. The adage that we cannot tell for sure if any single weather event was…

Arctic Sea Ice Threshold Crossing

By Arctic Sea Ice

It appears that we have truly crossed a threshold. Since 2005, every year Arctic sea ice extents have been below every other year in the record back to 1979. Of course, we can’t tell with absolute statistical certainty. But we have been warned for decades that this would happen. This year’s melt record exceed the…

Global Warming Caused Landslide in Alaska?

By Mega-Landslides

Melting permafrost changes mountainsides into dirt pudding . If your read my reporting on mega-tsunamis from March 13, 2011, you know that evidence of astronomically large landslides has been recorded in Hawaii and evidence exists around the world of similar events. The evidence shows tsunami debris 1,200 feet above sea level from the last interglacial…

Greenland Melt: Much Faster Than Previously Thought

By Uncategorized

What was previously thought to be the threshold or complete melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet was an average global warming of 3.4 to 9.2 degrees F has now been refined to 1.4 to 5.8 degrees F. this is roughly half the warming that we previously understood. What was previously thought to be the threshold…

Greenland Melt Equals 2010, Melt Index was 6th Greatest in 2010

By Uncategorized

Our buddy Tedesco at Cryospheric Processes tells us that The Greenland Melt Index ranked 6th in 2011. The melt index anomaly is the number of days with detectable surface melt compared to the baseline period of 1979-2010, and is estimated from satellite microwave observations. But this “melt index” is something like comparing sea ice extents…

Greenland Melt Accelerating

By Uncategorized

  – 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…
