new video re GIS
« on: July 30, 2013, 05:43:50 PM »
A handy primer aimed at the average citizen to keep them awake at night, a new video from Yale Climate Forum: Greenland Ice Sheet: "Starting to Slip"

Dynamic deglaciation of the GIS “faster than the models assume at present” – Dr Alun Hubbard  (also with Dr Richard Alley, Dr Jason Box).

Recent Science from Greenland

    Marine-terminating glaciers drain nearly 90% of the Greenland ice mass
    Under-ice motions (basal sliding) play a very large role in dynamics of ice sheet’s
    Vertical uplift, in excess of post glacial rebound, due to rapid crustal response to recent ice mass losses
    Uplift ‘pulses’ correlated with short-lived events such as seasonal surface melt anomalies
    Greenland Ice Sheet interacting extensively and rapidly with surrounding ocean (see Fig) and overlying atmosphere http://climatestate.com/2013/07/29/greenland-ice-sheet-starting-to-slip/
