For a comparison with the previous post with respect to the retreat of the Thwaites Glacier's ice front, see the ice front on March 4, 2013 in the attached image. The variation in the pattern sea ice loss from year to year is a mystery to me.

Weeks of cloudiness in Thwaites area. With Sentinel and EOSDIS - no chance of evaluation what is going on there.
Today the western edge of iceberg B-22-A is visible and I calculated its WNW movement between Feb 4 and Apr 7. It has moved around 3-4 km since then which is in my opinion a sign that it has melted a little bit from below and has lost some of its pinning points.
