“That was kind of a surprise. The vast majority of glaciers are receding. No longer receding inland, new measurements show that Jakobshavn’s ice is thickening and advancing towards the ocean. The Jakobshavn glacier, located in Greenland, began thinning around 2012 to nearly 130 feet annually. Guaranteed ‘investment’ isn’t the only finger on this scale. Greenland Ice Sheet surface mass budget far, far higher than average. A major Greenland glacier that was one of the fastest shrinking ice and snow masses on Earth is growing again, a new NASA study finds. NASA's Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) project has revealed Greenland’s Jakobshavn Glacier, the island’s biggest, is actually growing, at least at its edge. The fastest-shrinking glacier in Greenland has made an unexpected turn. Land Ice: Why is it receding in some places but not in others and what are the projected impacts? Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. Scientists studying a key glacier were shocked — shocked! That’s 82-112 billion tons per year! Image acquired on June 6, 2019, by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8, shows a natural-color view of the glacier. Melting glaciers such as Jakobshavn Isbræ have begun to expose rock, soil, and ocean waters, which in turn causes further melting, as those darker surfaces absorb more heat. But the latest research shows that Jakobshavn, once the fastest-melting glacier on Earth, is now growing. Categories Archives, Global Warming Hoax, Growing Glaciers, World News & Records 13 Comments. NASA says the Jakobshavn glacier, the fastest-flowing in Greenland, is growing again, a surprise to researchers. Redistribution of wealth from people who create it to the State and its experts who can’t be proven wrong. "And seeing the oceans have such a huge impact on the glaciers is bad news for Greenland's ice sheet.". "At first we didn't believe it," JPL glaciologist Ala Khazendar said in a news release. Is there a Vegas-Line on Sea ice, glaciers, and climate doom? What if we remove the government-money influence? The mainstream media seems to have somehow missed this. According to new research by scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the glacier's turnaround is explained by the arrival of cold coastal water. Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. It’s now growing again at about the same rate in the past two years, a study in Nature Geoscience noted. This important glacier in Greenland is massive, measuring about 1 mile in thickness. “That was kind of a surprise. However, focusing solely on these few glaciers to indicate global glacier growth paints a very misleading picture. Following the study’s publication, additional analyses show Jakobshavn grew thicker by 22 and 33 yards (20 to 30 meters) each year from 2016 to 2019. Not that I can find. Located on the west coast of Greenland, Jakobshavn Isbræ is one of the most rapidly shrinking glaciers in the world. But the last two years it started growing again at about the same rate, according to a study released on Monday, March 25, 2019, in Nature Geoscience. Jakobshavn’s changes are temporary. Glaciers melt or grow for three reasons: changes in the hydrological cycle (where, when, and how much rain/snow falls), soot pollution [i], and atmospheric temperatures. Glaciers diminish or grow based on the difference between the amount of snow that accumulates and the amount of ice that melts. They also went through retreats in the past 1,000 years, when most of the other glaciers were thriving. It’s been growing again at about the same rate for the past two years, a study in Nature Geoscience noted. Even if a calving event takes a glacier back several km, it is still a sign of a growing glacier. The Jakobshavn Isbrae glacier, also known as Sermeq Kujalleq, is located on the west coast of Greenland at Latitude 69 degrees N. The ice front, where the glacier calves into the sea, receded more than 40 km between 1850 and 2010. Jakobshavn Glacier in western Greenland is notorious for being the world’s fastest-moving glacier. “And take all the people who are in denial of global warming, take all their money and invest in companies that would presume there is no global warming. Again, these eight glaciers are the unusual ones. In addition to growing toward the ocean, the glacier was found to be slowing and thickening. That’s about the height of a 10-story building … per year! Glaciers appear to be growing, not melting in recent years at Glacier National Park. Melting of Greenland's glaciers contributes to sea-level rise, 2,3,4 and is expected to fuel global warming. During the 2000s, the Jakobshavn was the fastest flowing glacier on Greenland, moving at about 10.5 miles per year, reports the BBC’s Jonathan Amos. https://t.co/yquucYiG00 – @NBCNewsMACH. They dance to the tune of the Federal Grant Fiddler. We see that there are isolated glaciers that are growing. (NASA via AP) According to a new report, the Jakobshavn glacier “around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning nearly 130 feet annually,â€ TheÂ Associated Press reported. The Jakobshavn glacier, located in Greenland, began thinning around 2012 to nearly 130 feet annually. Scientists with the OMG mission, however, are keen to better understand the influence of ocean currents and temperatures on coastal glaciers. Hubbard Glacier’s catchment basin is in the Saint Elias Mountains and has a big accumulation area (95% of the glacier as a whole) which allows the terminus to advance as long as the accumulation areas (places where snow and ice are added) stay larger than … Published on November 26, 2016. A new NASA study, released on Friday, admits that ice is accumulating in Antarctica. When the NAO flips again, the glacier will most likely resume accelerating and thinning, as warm waters return to continue melting it from beneath. In the summer of 2012, Jakobshavn accelerated to speeds not seen before, surging at a rate of 17 kilometers (10 miles) per year. Jakobshavn is Greenland’s fastest-moving glacier, and the flow rate is variable with spurts of speed in the summer and additional variation from year to year. Reply. Jakobshavn has represented the largest source of Greenland’s ice mass loss over the last 20 years, and has produced about 10 percent of the country’s icebergs. And I would predict [the climate deniers] will all go broke in the next 50 years.”. Jakobshavn is now thickening and advancing toward the ocean. “You take all the scientists who author these papers, get them to pool their money and invest in companies that would benefit from global warming,” said Tyson. Folks committed to socialist politics and even one-world government where rights are handed out like grants to people who say and do what the state wants said and done. Jakobshavn Glacier drains 6.5% of the Greenland ice sheet and produces around 10% of all Greenland icebergs.Some 35 billion tonnes of icebergs calve off and pass out of the fjord every year. Debate Discussion with Liz Gabert and then Guest Cassie Smedlle from the RNC, Greg Moore Explains How You Can Help Defuse New Hampshire’s Tax Hike Time Bomb, Jeanine Notter, Al Baldasaro, Ann Marie Banfield, Hal Shurtleff and Scott Adler. It is the island's fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier. But the climate scientists only measure at the point on the extreme right of the edge of the glacier in the photo from 2012 on. Though Jakobshavn is still losing more ice than it’s gaining snow pack — making it a contributor to sea level rise — the glacier is no longer receding or thinning. This is true for the other seven Alaskan glaciers that are growing and advancing too – in addition to large accumulation zones, all eight calve into the sea over shallow submarine moraines and sit above long fjords. Nine zeroes! Key Facts. Officials at Glacier National Park (GNP) have begun quietly removing and altering signs and government literature which told visitors that the Park’s glaciers were all expected to disappear by either 2020 or 2030. It’s headed toward the ocean and getting a lot thicker. But they warn it's only temporary. But it started growing again at about the same rate in the past two years, according to a study in Monday’s Nature Geoscience.

Retreat of Jakobshavn Glacier, Greenland. Climate shock: 90 percent of the world’s glaciers are GROWING. Jakobshavn is now flowing more slowly, thickening, and advancing toward the ocean instead of retreating farther inland. States that advocate it are using force to confiscate (taxes) and redirect billions (grants and loans) toward research and business concerns that promote the advance their political agenda. A NASA study reveals that a glacier in Greenland is now flowing slower, thickening, and advancing towards the ocean instead of retreating farther inland. "Their findings -- especially about how quickly the ice responds -- will be important to projecting sea level rise in both the near and distant future. The Jakobshavn glacier around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles (3 kilometers) and thinning nearly 130 feet (almost 40 meters) annually. Negative values indicate shrinkage. Nick Stokes stepped in it big time when he implied otherwise. That trace gas you exhale that makes every green thing grow is destroying the planet, and the only solution is more what? A major Greenland glacier that was one of the fastest shrinking ice and snow masses on Earth is growing again, a new NASA study finds. 26 MARCH 2019. But according to new data collected by NASA scientists, the glacier is growing again. “That was kind of a surprise. In 2017 he proposed a challenge. Copyright © 2020 United Press International, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Jakobshavn has spent decades in retreat—that is, until scientists observed an unexpected advance between 2016 and 2017. Six years ago, the Jakobshavn glacier was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning nearly 130 feet annually but it started growing again at about the … NASA studies Greenland to determine how much of it is melting, Melting Antarctic glacier could increase global sea levels 8 feet, Antarctica is shedding six times more ice mass than it was 40 years ago. The Jakobshavn glacier around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning nearly 130 feet annually. ", After receding for 20 years, Greenland's Jakobshavn Glacier is once again advancing toward the ocean. . It’s easy to think of ice as still and rigid. But according to new data collected by NASA scientists, the glacier is growing again. New data collected in March 2019 confirm that the glacier has grown for the third year in a row, and scientists attribute the change to cool ocean waters. The Jakobshavn Glacier, the … It has been receding for years, and the losses were accelerating, but then it astonished the scientists. It's also flowing more slowly. But it started growing again at about the same rate in the past two years, according to a study in Monday’s Nature Geoscience. The Jakobshavn glacier, located in Greenland, began thinning around 2012 to nearly 130 feet annually. Jakobshavn is now thickening and advancing toward the ocean. Per year. In addition to growing toward the ocean, the glacier was found to be slowing and thickening. The other graphics that Nik provides to further his narrative are of unknown provenance and should be regarded as questionable. As I recently reported in my April 22 column, Jakobshavn — the previously fastest-flowing, fastest-thinning glacier on Greenland’s west coast — has reversed course as well. "The OMG mission deployed new technologies that allowed us to observe a natural experiment, much as we would do in a laboratory, where variations in ocean temperatures were used to control the flow of a glacier," said NASA scientist Tom Wagner. “That was kind of a surprise. A recent study team from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, determined that water transported to the area around the glacier by a key ocean current has been colder than it was prior to 2016, when the growth began. in other words that is 112,000,000,000 tons. Jakobshavn's growth did not come as a surprise to scientists. Maybe not quite the way we think. Jakobshavn Glacier Danish: Jakobshavn Isbræ, also known as Ilulissat Glacier Greenlandic: Sermeq Kujalleq is a large outlet glacier in West Greenland.It is located near the Greenlandic town of Ilulissat (colonial name in Danish: Jakobshavn) and ends at the sea in the Ilulissat Icefjord.. Jakobshavn Glacier drains 6.5% of the Greenland ice sheet and produces around 10% of all Greenland icebergs. The glacier Jakobshavn, in Greenland, growing thicker Details Published: 29 March 2019 A recent discovery made by the scientists at NASA about Greenland´s fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier actually growing thicker took the scientists by surprise. But glaciers are active—flowing and shifting, advancing and retreating. The climate cult Pharisees themselves are beholden to this redistributive scheme. Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary. Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary. The cold currents first arrived in 2016, and temperatures near the face of the glacier are now the coldest they've been in 40 years. According to a new report, the Jakobshavn glacier “around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning … Hi Tony. Following the study’s publication, additional analyses show Jakobshavn grew thicker by 22 and 33 yards (20 to 30 meters) each year from 2016 to 2019. Growing is now going. Jakobshavn’s changes are temporary. For the casual reader, appinsys is well-known to be a site of active disinformation on matters related to climate and climate change. The same climate pattern has brought unexpected species to British waters in recent years. Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. “The good news is that it’s a reminder that it’s not necessarily going that fast. And the latest news that a lead actor in the political theater known as Climate Change has left the stage is no detriment to the end goal. 15,16; Details. Photo by NASA/OIB/John Sonntag, Iconic dome at Arecibo Observatory collapses, OneWeb's satellite plant returns to full-scale production, Astronomers find carbon monoxide gas flowing from distant star system, Storing carbon through tree planting, preservation costs more than thought, Scientists explain how insects got their wings. Jakobshavn Isbræ in west Greenland, a major outlet glacier of the Greenland Ice Sheet, was the fastest moving glacier in the world over the past half century. Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. This year the OMG crew discovered that the ocean warmed in front of Jakobshavn Glacier to 2.6 degrees Celsius, or, 36.7 Fahrenheit, which they expect will cause the glacier … No longer receding inland, new measurements show that Jakobshavn’s ice is thickening and advancing towards the ocean.
