Lindhard Ø / Borgfjorden / Dove Bugt / North East Greenland
« on: August 08, 2013, 07:45:52 PM »
Lindhard Island: This more or less unnoticed island in Dove Bugt and Borgfjorden, may become navigable for the first time in satellite history, only 800 meter of glacier ice remains between Bagfjorden and Bræfjorden, and may also be the end of story for 2 fjords?
Any suggestions what this new sound should be called?

Thanks guys *)!

But the above report was hastily produced in a wonderful place in Nieder Sachsen, Germany. Attended a meeting (re. the arctic), from what I hopefully can report about in future. Next week I will discuss with people in Greenalnd and Copenhagen about several issues regarding the above and more, I will inform you when I know more.

*) I dont believe your suggestions will accepted by the place name committee :'(

Espen,

What do you make of this :

The infamously named Bigberg 2013 area showed some really remarkable devlopment today : it's almost like it did "poof". The last frame shows the whole area broken up, al the fast ice gone.

I checked against the latest http://earthdata.nasa.gov/labs/worldview/ and the area is visible on the 10th, al bits and pieces, waiting for the current to pick them up.

Hi Lars,

There is still a large piece the one I think you call Bigberg 2013, as soon as I can get some clear images I will explain what is left of the fast (offshore) ice around Jøkelbugt.

The red area indicates what is left of the fast ice.

I have made a new update of the area, although the image is crowded with clouds.

Please click on the image to enlarge and for better details.

If that's your video, adding the last frame multiple times will make the video "freeze" on the last frame so that people have a chance to study it for a moment.

Greenland is looking like it will have no more fast ice on its east coast.  Lots of melting is going to happen off that coast as  CAB ice enters via the Fram.  All the Atlantic heat can be used to melt transported ice.

You may recall I posted this on August 8 2013:

Lindhard Island: This more or less unnoticed island in Dove Bugt and Borgfjorden, may become navigable for the first time in satellite history, only 800 meter of glacier ice remains between Bagfjorden and Bræfjorden, and may also be the end of story for 2 fjords?

I think it already happened, at least it looks so on todays Modis images. I will confirm it when I receive the landsat images from today:

I enjoy your comentary about the images you offer - little bits of insight that are part of the big Arctic ice picture.  Thanks.
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

Well I really appreciate your efforts Espen. I love the images, comments and naming of the geographic features of these glaciers, bugts & fiords. It really brings the area to life for me.

I'll have to add my thanks Espen.  I've quickly gained a love of Greenland's geography despite my recent near ignorance, thanks to following along this forum, and especially owing to your wonderful satellite-based mini-travelogues.

One more Espen fan here! I check the Greenland posts several times a day to see what Espen has come up with.

Breaking NewsAfter years of studying images and datas as you can read above, I can now with full documentation from Landsat 1-5-8 and Sentinel 2 declare a new free island of the coast of North East Greenland, this time we have Lindhard Ø a pretty large island in the release "competition" with aprox. 260 km2 and big enough to become the 10th largest island in Denmark (Greenland and Faroe Islands not included).
It is not every year we see island releases, we had a small one this spring in Giesecke Isfjord https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,1371.msg194164.html#msg194164 and a very spectacular release in front of Kjer Gletscher in 2017 https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,1209.msg109997.html#msg109997

https://twitter.com/Ecoverycom

I have 2 sets of documentation one from Landsat using data all the way from Landsat 1 (1973 - 2019) and the more recent data from Sentinel 2 (2016-2019).
As you can see from the animations below big differences have taken place during this period.

Thank you for these updates Espen.
I am still waiting for an island to be called after you, the discoverer.
