Glaciers / Re: Canadian Glaciers
« on: July 07, 2020, 06:50:29 AM »
A short news article regarding the acceleration, retreat, and increased calving of the Trinity and Wykeham glaciers on the eastern side of Ellesmere Island.  The terminus of these glaciers is a fiord that empties into Pikialasorsuaq, the North Water Polynya—an area of year-round open water that’s the largest of its kind in the Arctic. 

In 2000, these two glaciers produced 22 per cent of all of the icebergs in the Canadian Arctic. By 2019, they produced 65 per cent.

Arctic sea ice / Re: Temperatures at Eureka, Nunavut, Canada

My understanding is the Environment Canada station is near the coast at 0 elevation.  The Airfield according to Nav Canada is at 83 meters (272 feet)

Then there is, PEARL,  the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory (Canadian Network for Detection of Atmospheric Change).  PEARL has three sites: The PEARL Ridge Laboratory 15km from the Eureka weather station at 610m elevation, the 0PAL laboratory next to the weather station and the SAFIRE site which is far from structures for undisturbed measurements.  Couple of links.

For some real time images of the snow in the CAA there are a few good cameras at Canadian airports on the Nav Canada WxCam site.

Antarctica / Re: PIG has calved

I am enjoying the analysis and progress of the NIS and thinking it would become one of my regular go-to items.  However, I suggest the NIS should now have it's own thread and not be on the PIG thread as all they now share is past influence, and the bay.

Arctic sea ice / Re: Arctic Image of the Day

Wasn't sure where to post this - For those looking for live images, Nav Canada has a site with Live weather cameras at a lot of Canadian airports.  Many of the cameras at northern Airports have a bit of the sea in the background.
