For years NASA has tracked changes in the massive Greenland Ice Sheet. This week scientists using NASA data released the most detailed picture ever of how the ice sheet moves toward the sea and new insights into the hidden plumbing of melt water flowing under the snowy surface.
The results of these studies are expected to improve predictions of the future of the entire Greenland ice sheet and its contribution to sea level rise as researchers revamp their computer models of how the ice sheet reacts to a warming climate.
“With the help of NASA satellite and airborne remote sensing instruments, the Greenland Ice Sheet is finally yielding its secrets,” said Tom Wagner, program scientist for NASA’s cryosphere program in Washington. “These studies represent new leaps in our knowledge of how the ice sheet is losing ice. It turns out the ice sheet is a lot more complex than we ever thought.”

Old article from 2008. Greenland is thinning, check the latest research:

7.2 meters is almost 24feet of water height if that sheet melts completely and some of our coastal towns already see high tides that flood them, which is American coastal towns.

Glacier calving is fascinating and frightening to watch, skyscraper sized chinks of ice rapidly flipping and moving out to the oceans.

Watch this!

Quite amazing to watch, even just the sound of it breaking up.

Fascinating watching big chunks of ice dropping into the sea.

Google Earth still shows the ice shelf on Greenland, but then again, hard to say how much exposed land now in the North is from the departure of the ice, and that the polar zone of the North Pole is all water, no Ice, clear as crystal is worrisome, and explains a lot of the wacky weather.

Like I said Ags, Google Earth shows no ice at all right now on the North Pole, NONE, zip, nada, zero.

Greenland, some islands and parts of Siberia have ice, but that is a lot of free and clear ocean, no ice in that drink
