Thanx for all the positive comments, I suggest if anyone wants to continue the thread they should apply to Neven, but I warn it is pretty tedious  and sometimes challenging due to break downs and changing report times from ADS. I recall I reported to this thread from many destinations around the world Katmandu , Jomson, Pokhara, New Delhi, Oslo, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Edinburg and from many other places comes to mind and my now favourite place Fejø, a small Danish island.
I will continue to report my glacier observations the part of the climate problem I find most interesting.

Nansen Gletscher to Morell Gletscher Melville Bay in Baffin Bay North West Greenland.
Continuing retreat at most of the many glaciers in the northern part of Melville Bay, especially Nansen Gletscher is retreating and changing shape over the last 2 years (2015-2017).

I even suspect there is a new Island between the New Island ( Former Trekanten ) and the glacier outlets, but who cares?

I am aware that some reports claim the total mass balance of the Greenland Ice Sheet is positive for the year 2017, but I am pretty sure this does not include the Melville Bay area inside Baffin Bay, since many of the glaciers in the area retreated visibly for even untrained eyes during 2017.
Most dramatic is the separation of the outlets of Kjer Gletscher and Steenstrup Gletscher, a new island is even born in this proces and continuing retreat of these 2 glaciers is expected during the next couple of months.

Greenland and Arctic Circle / Re: Glacier Lake 66N, 50W / West Greenland
« on: September 03, 2017, 10:41:57 PM »
Where exactly did you find "Sø 860"? I also couldn't find a name on GEUSs maps / website and if it is nowhere mentioned than aren't we are free to propose a name?

I am afraid there is an anti western (danish) atmosphere in Greenland, so anything that rhimes with danish is a no-go. And since this is a pretty southern destination it will never work, you can get away with it much further north, beyond the rule of "selvstyret" and the interest of the fat cats in Nuuk.

Tealight and Espen

Bice topic this one. I believe this glacer lake is the same as the one investigated briefly by the then Geological Survey of Greenland (now GEUS) in the 1980íes under the label name "Sø 860" indicatimg that the lake surface was around 860 masl. at som stage when a map was drawn.

In those days, the lake surface was covered by lake ice most years, but now it appears to have become ice free most years.

And I can add to this there is no name for lake in the GEUSs maps I have, but the maps says between 800 - 900 masl.

Interesting and nice spotting, I have tried via several maps to find a name for this lake, but with no result.
