Surrounding Ice Retreat at Jakobshavn, since this is only a study about how much the ice on the rocks surrounding Jakobshavn Isbræ is affected by the climate changes, the glacier itself is masked, but watch the rocks marked with X, the timespan is only about 2½ year (September 2016 - June 2019), quite dramatic if you ask me?

Antarctica / The Ross Ice Shelf Thread
« on: February 17, 2019, 09:04:01 PM »
I just wondered that the largest Antarctic Ice Shelf - the Ross Ice Shelf - does not have its own thread. You can see it constantly growing, almost no cracks at its northern edge, apart from two or three seemingly elder ones. And so it didn't show larger calving events for many years or even decades.
Yesterday the northeasternmost corner of it showed a minor calving, an area of around 10 x 2 km broke off, in an area already full of cracks, see attached picture.

Thank you iwantatr for this animation. It is quite a big difference.

Antarctica / Halley base shut down and new crack in Brunt shelf
« on: January 16, 2017, 06:30:16 PM »

The British Antarctic Survey is to pull all staff out of its space-age Halley base in March for safety reasons.
The highly unusual move is necessary because the Brunt Ice Shelf on which the research station sits has developed a big new crack.

Lets hope it can get fixed !
