Nice speed, B_.  (And please don't slow it down to 'real time'.)
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

That's the thing. If it plays fast, you can at least see the glacier move.

Making GIFs is not that easy! ;)

Teensy-weensy calving mid glacier.

You can see the wave if you look closely.

Here are some GIFs documenting the calvings that occurred during winter. There were quite a few!

From north to south.

Humbold awakes! Many calvings and icebergs turning to the side.

I guess it was held in place by the static sea ice in Kane Basin.

I bet this is a huge variable to consider.

But also the melt ponds draining and making holes i guess. In the last GIF, you can see them emptying.

Looks like it has been calfing on the north side. I believe that is where the ice speeds are highest.
