Damit, it's Sentinel day and it's cloudy over the PIG. :(

Blumenkraft, this morning Polar View was working and is currently working (at least this morning I saved the images).

But there was nothing to report and therefore no post.

attached two zoom :
one relative to the PIIS from the low resolution image (S1A_EW_GRDM_1SDH_20200114)
one relative to the Cork from the high resolution image (S1B_IW_GRDH_1SSH_20200114)

There's no need to be in a hurry, it can break at any time or not, the Cork, transformed into a "Ball", will be rolling along the SIS and in a month's time will still be in this situation. ;)

It's not only that i'm impatient, i also hate it when stuff doesn't work as expected.  ;)

Thanks for the zoomed out animation over multiple frames. Makes it easier to understand the big picture.
Watching it a few times, it's clear the width of the big crack at its western side (nearer to the cork) has increased significantly over the last week.

Thanks for animation also. It make all the difference when looking these pics. I think I can see some widening on crack when I look at one point in animation. But Im not sure. There is new satelite image from today, but nothing new. Maybe if it its aded to animation. I still cant put images from my computer here. Only from web. Can you help with that?

So what will it be?

1. R2 crack widens allowing ice into that crack which reduces pressure resisting the cork twisting further, so large calving can pass the cork.

2. Cork to twist a little more so large calving can pass the cork (without ice needing to enter crack).

3. Another small calving near cork so large calving can pass the cork.

4. Cork small calving/split/disintegration such that large calving can pass the cork/push parts of cork out.

5. Cork doesn't matter, it is when there is wide enough rifts to shear off calving at Northern end?

6. Something else?

Surely not much longer?

I have no opinion.

But imagine somewhere out there, there's some sort of equivalent to the cork just holding this whole beautiful, terrible universe together?

Crandles,

South side:
The compression effort between the Cork and the future Iceberg is decreasing and will soon be null which will lead in any case to the release of the Iceberg on the south side (hypothesis 2).
It could be that the southern edge of the iceberg will crumble beforehand (hypothesis 3): if this becomes more difficult as the pressure decreases, it must be taken into account that it must not be in good condition.
The Cork itself should not break (I thus retain less probable hypothesis 4).
The widening of R2 is upstream of the Cork-Iceberg junction and for me it does not change the terms of the problem (so I do not retain hypothesis 1)
I would like to add two other hypotheses for completeness:
Crumbling of the eastern edge of the future Iceberg SWT-SIS which is one of the points of support of the Cork. This side took a big knock during the compression by the plug with the formation of many fractures parallel to the compression stress. Now the compression tends to decrease, but also to change direction, which, taking into account the existing fractures, could lead to its crumbling: to be taken into account (hypothesis 6).
The iceberg is now weakened and could break north of the point of contact with the cork (hypothesis 7).

North side:
For the moment is more solid, but once it's yielded to the south it shouldn't last long (a month?). Hypothesis 5 for me is therefore not an alternative to the other hypotheses, but complements them.
But while waiting for the north side the iceberg could start to crumble (hypothesis8).

Open questions:
* North side: how will the breakage occur: will we keep the side of the shelf attached to the pinning point or will we lose a piece of it, which would move the pinning point back?
* Once the Pinning Point is detached from the future Iceberg, will it stay in place at least temporarily or will it also calve immediately allowing the dense ice mixture upstream to calve quickly?
* Will R3 continue to widen and expand creating the conditions for further calving or, once the south side of the Iceberg is free, will it temporarily stabilize?

 Conclusions : we don't have many positive elements ...

The "cork" looks like a crushable re-forming (smaller and smaller) set of ball bearings.  Great GIF, B_.

Honestly it looks like it's already calved and is not attached in any way to the rest of the ice shelf. Just held by a bit of side pressure.

Oren,
there are only 600m and they only hold because there are only compressive forces, but for the moment there has been no separation between the Cork and the future Iceberg (the image is from 06/01, but the Sentinel1 images of the following days don't seem to show anything else), the two are still attached. This can break at any time, but for me it can't be said that he has already calved (virtually maybe, but not really).
Plus there's no detachment on the north side yet.

I'm also of the impression that the cork means nothing. Maybe there is still a connection or friction, but it looks completely dwarfed by the strength that comes from the connection on the northern side.

Grimx,
There was and still is no friction, but a compression to be absorbed to allow the advancement of both: Future Iceberg and Cork: it was physical, to advance it was necessary to compress (reduce the cumulated length of the Future Iceberg and Cork). In a certain sense this is the principle of the keystones.
That's what made it possible to hold. As soon as the pressure stops (and it is decreasing) and/or shear forces appear, both will immediately detach.
It is not the north side that the south side holds together...

Where is this pressure coming from? The shelf seems to move perpendicular to the cork, not towards it. And it looks to be in a position where if the shelf does push towards it, it would not hold back at all, it would just rotate away effortlessly and yield.

This is how I interpret it. The compression pressure increases until we get to the narrowest pinch point which I have tried to indicate below. Basically calving and cork are too wide to fit through the gap but we are now nearly at the pinch point.

This shows the pressure will soon start decreasing but not quite there yet. However I am not sure my perpendicular and direction of travel are perfect.

Southernmost point in direction perpendicular to travel is nearly at the narrowest point. Also just a little more rotation by cork and direction of travel for calving will be free. Or maybe a combination of these.

The southern pinch point has been slowly deforming to make the gap wider. While ahead of the northern pinchpoint there have been calvings which I think are indicative of this compression stress.

I tried to be as precise as possible, for this reason I used the images of 06/01 and 18/01 (the two most recent homogeneous images).
I used the same colors as Crandle.
We can see that the movement tends to be perpendiculous at the Cork and that on the 18th we're not far from 90°, but not yet...

The compression effort, in the past months, has had several effects and, to limit myself to the future Iceberg:
* mini-calving at the joint
* opening of the longitudinal fractures (parallel to the calving front) in the Iceberg
* in the north it probably delayed the opening of fractures parallel to the flow due to the shearing, which may cause more damage to the pinning point (in the static or semi-static shelf in front of the pinning point) which may move the pinning point upstream (which is not good at all)

I also suspect that the action of the Cork it is for something in the very fast opening of the R3 (which is not good at all)

Thanks for that Paolo, much better than my effort.

With 12 days between those images, it looks to me that if the movement continues at the same rate then green line will become perpendicular in about 24 days. So it seems unlikely that cork could continue to provide much resistance for more than about 24 days. (Could of course happen earlier with small calvings/splits/increased speed etc.) Slowing the movement might make it longer but there is so nearly enough room now whereas previous a high rate of squeeze was needed to make the progress it has, so slowdown now doesn't seem likely. Perhaps this is what Paola is referring to when he said "As soon as the pressure stops (and it is decreasing)"?

Thank you for the animation. It is clearly visible that each of the major calvings happens further upstream than before. The next calving will also be at the highest position ever - independently from when it will happen exactly.
Even the speeding up of PIIS-MIS can't make up for this.

We should also be aware of the fact that - to my knowledge - the cork is the last solid connection between SWT/SIS on the SW side and the Main Ice Shelf (MIS) of PIIS on the NE side. If this connection is lost, the next solid connection between MIS and SIS is far upstream SE of the "zone of destruction" with hundreds of flosting icebergs. I wonder whether the increasing speed of the MIS will also lead to an extension of the "zone of destruction" further upstream, because the differences in flow speed between MIS and SIS are so huge.

North side: R2 and R0 new expansions, now R0 is ahead of R1 and R2 is almost at the same level as R1.

R0, R1, R2, R3 : composite calving  ::)

In this weird calving, and if everything in the north started with R0 ?
 :o

and if everything started with North ?!?

Maybe! I feel like we see more dynamic changes in the north at the moment. The cork can rotate a little longer. It may act as a natural suspension, holding back the pressure in the south-west.

Something has to give ... any time now.

Good news!

Grixm,
The satellite travels in the same orbit every 10 days.

And that's why, to create animations, you have to use images with multiple intervals of 10 days!

But you don't need that, actually. There is a repeating pattern, every 10 days for some days (the 2nd, and 7th for the PIG. Moving on the calendar when the month has 31 days of course).

Ah, right. Thanks for the correction, Paolo.

But the blumencrack region is also scheduled for 07th. ;)

Some zoom:
- Cork NE side (Join with the future iceberg)
- A possible joint between R1 and R2 (which could stop the extension of R2)
- Extension R2
- Extension R3

I surely didn't expect R3 to grow this direction.

Here is a zoomed out comparison of 23.12. (latest valid cloud-free date) vs. today.
