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 … It is the island's fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier. Nine zeroes! Again, these eight glaciers are the unusual ones. 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. "Jakobshavn is getting a temporary break from this climate pattern. The Jakobshavn glacier, located in Greenland, began thinning around 2012 to nearly 130 feet annually. (NASA via AP) Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary. 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. NASA recently showed that the glacier has been growing as of recent, believe it or not. But according to new data collected by NASA scientists, the glacier is growing again. The best you can do is vapid nonsense like this from liberal Climate Cult doyen like Neil deGrasse Tyson. "And seeing the oceans have such a huge impact on the glaciers is bad news for Greenland's ice sheet.". Though Jakobshavn is still losing more ice than it's gaining snow pack -- … New NASA data shows that Jakobshavn Glacier — Greenland's fastest-moving and fastest-thinning glacier for most of the 2000s — grew from 2018 into 2019, marking three consecutive years of growth. 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 … It’s been growing again at about the same rate for the past two years, a study in Nature Geoscience noted. “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. Land Ice: Why is it receding in some places but not in others and what are the projected impacts? In addition to growing toward the ocean, the glacier was found to be slowing and thickening. It’s headed toward the ocean and getting a lot thicker. 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. Jakobshavn is a big actor in the planet's future and Greenland's stability — a land that holds enough ice to raise sea levels by 23 feet.That's because Jakobshavn isn't a normal glacier. What if we remove the government-money influence? Scientists with the OMG mission recently returned to Greenland for another series of aerial surveys. 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. Scientists estimate a climate pattern called North Atlantic Oscillation is driving the ocean temperature changes observed along Greenland's west coast. Early on in Global Warming Hysteria ‘disappearing glaciers’ was a pivotal talking point in the “End is Near” (government can prevent it) narrative. Key Facts. A major Greenland glacier that was one of the fastest-shrinking ice and snow masses on Earth is growing again, a NASA study has found. The following table shows the mass balance of individual glaciers over 2002 and 2003. "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. 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. It made the iceberg that “sank the titanic”. 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. Global Warming is a political construct conceived to redistribute wealth and empower governments. But the latest research shows that Jakobshavn, once the fastest-melting glacier on Earth, is now growing. 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. (Part of the How to Talk to a Global Warming Skeptic guide) Objection: A few glaciers receding today is not proof of global warming. Jakobshavn Glacier produces around 10% of all Greenland icebergs; that's around 4 billion tons of ice entering the sea. “That was kind of a surprise. The advancement or retreat of a glacier’s terminus depends on the snowfall that melts down or flows from its catchment basin. But it is going.”. https://t.co/yquucYiG00 – @NBCNewsMACH. "We had pretty much assumed that Jakobshavn would just keep going on as it had over the last 20 years.". The Jakobshavn glacier, located in Greenland, began thinning around 2012 to nearly 130 feet annually. Image acquired on June 6, 2019, by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8, shows a natural-color view of the glacier. Steve is a New Hampshire resident, blogger, and activist; A member of the board of the 603 Alliance, NHCMP, NHRVC, LFGC, and the host of GrokTALK! 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. That trace gas you exhale that makes every green thing grow is destroying the planet, and the only solution is more what? March 26 (UPI) -- For the last two decades, Greenland's Jakobshavn Glacier has been rapidly melting. 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. Redistribution of wealth from people who create it to the State and its experts who can’t be proven wrong. The NAO pattern reverses every five to 20 years. Published on November 26, 2016. Glacier is growing and thickening. Not that I can find. Greenland Ice Sheet surface mass budget far, far higher than average. Scientists with the OMG mission, however, are keen to better understand the influence of ocean currents and temperatures on coastal glaciers. In the summer of 2012, Jakobshavn accelerated to speeds not seen before, surging at a rate of 17 kilometers (10 miles) per year. When the NAO flips again, the glacier will most likely resume accelerating and thinning, as warm waters return to continue melting it from beneath. 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. What is meant by land ice? Per year. “That was kind of a surprise. While NASA also indicated that the Jakobshavn Glacier has been losing more mass than it’s been putting on as a result of its ice melting faster than snow can pack on top of it, it’s not thinning or receding. Neither Tyson nor his Climate “experts” would ever make a bet. Jakobshavn is now thickening and advancing toward the ocean. The Greenland glacier Jakobshavn Isbrae is massive, at around 40 miles long and more than a mile thick. Negative values indicate shrinkage. That’s about the height of a 10-story building … per year! It's famous among glaciers as the source of the iceberg that sunk the Titanic—but it's responsible for more icebergs than that. Even if a calving event takes a glacier back several km, it is still a sign of a growing glacier. Glaciers diminish or grow based on the difference between the amount of snow that accumulates and the amount of ice that melts. Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. But the latest research shows that Jakobshavn, once the fastest-melting glacier on Earth, is now growing. Glaciers appear to be growing, not melting in recent years at Glacier National Park. In 2012, the Jakobshavn (YA-cob-shawv-en) glacier was estimated to be retreating at a rate of about 1.8 miles a year and thinning by nearly 130 feet. The fastest-shrinking glacier in Greenland has made an unexpected turn. It’s … Satellite measurements show an 82-112 gigaton-a-year net ice gain. We see that there are isolated glaciers that are growing. But few sounds paint the picture of the town’s past, present and future like the thunderous roar of a calving Jakobshavn Glacier 30 miles away. 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. Satellite data … "At first we didn't believe it," JPL glaciologist Ala Khazendar said in a news release. Since the 1980s, waters have been growing warmer around Baffin Bay, where the glacier meets the sea. The other graphics that Nik provides to further his narrative are of unknown provenance and should be regarded as questionable. But according to new data collected by NASA scientists, the glacier is growing again. Retreat of Jakobshavn Glacier, Greenland. Major Greenland Glacier Is Growing June 6th, 2019 Jakobshavn Glacier in western Greenland. A new NASA study, released on Friday, admits that ice is accumulating in Antarctica. Glaciers growing in Spain (Pyrinees) 10 Jan 11 - El glaciar del Infierno (glacier of Hell) has advanced. The same government force will suppress opportunities or research that contradicts the goal as needed. The vast majority of glaciers are receding. Not of who can win but of how well you can lose. Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. It had been moving continuously at speeds of over 24 m (79 ft) per day with a stable terminus since at least 1950. 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 … 15,16; Details. That’s 82-112 billion tons per year! It’s easy to think of ice as still and rigid. As the latest Jakobshavn observations suggest, ocean patterns have a significant impact on glacial behavior. Jakobshavn Glacier in western Greenland is notorious for being the world’s fastest-moving glacier. Entire industries have risen that would never exist without this money. For the casual reader, appinsys is well-known to be a site of active disinformation on matters related to climate and climate change. The data they collected will help researchers more precisely characterize the effects of water temperatures, as well as ocean currents and waves, on the undersides of Greenland's melting glaciers.

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. Located on the west coast of Greenland, Jakobshavn Isbræ is one of the most rapidly shrinking glaciers in the world. Guaranteed ‘investment’ isn’t the only finger on this scale. Reply. NASA research shows that Jakobshavn Glacier, which has been Greenland's fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier for the last 20 years, has made an unexpected about-face. 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. It's also flowing more slowly. 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. The height of Jakobshavn glacier in western Greenland has increased by as much as 30 meters (98 feet) per year in some areas. The Jakobshavn glacier around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning nearly 130 feet annually. The same climate pattern has brought unexpected species to British waters in recent years. Jakobshavn’s changes are temporary. According to a new report, the Jakobshavn glacier “around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning … 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. 26 MARCH 2019. We kind of got used to a runaway system,” said Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland ice and climate scientist Jason Box. Jakobshavn is now thickening and advancing toward the ocean. However, focusing solely on these few glaciers to indicate global glacier growth paints a very misleading picture. Copyright © 2020 United Press International, Inc. All Rights Reserved. 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. The New Hampshire primary is a test. Although it's been melting for 20 years, the Jakobshavn Glacier in West Greenland - famous for producing the iceberg that sank the Titanic - has now started growing again. 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. 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 … NASA says the Jakobshavn glacier, the fastest-flowing in Greenland, is growing again, a surprise to researchers. Growing is now going. Read more. More is less, as with the poles. It’s also flowing more slowly. Written by iceagenow.info. And I would predict [the climate deniers] will all go broke in the next 50 years.”. The research was published in the journal Nature Geoscience this week. 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. But it started growing again at about the same rate in the past two years, according to a study in Monday’s Nature Geoscience. 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..

The Jakobshavn glacier around 2012 was retreating about 1.8 miles and thinning nearly 130 feet annually. Not that I can find. No longer receding inland, new measurements show that Jakobshavn’s ice is thickening and advancing towards the ocean. Scientists studying a key glacier were shocked — shocked! ", After receding for 20 years, Greenland's Jakobshavn Glacier is once again advancing toward the ocean. 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. 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.

But in the long run, the oceans are warming," said Josh Willis, lead scientists for NASA's Oceans Melting Greenland mission. But glaciers are active—flowing and shifting, advancing and retreating. 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. It has been receding for years, and the losses were accelerating, but then it astonished the scientists. 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. Is there a Vegas-Line on Sea ice, glaciers, and climate doom? In an age when so many glaciers are melting, Alaska's Hubbard Glacier is doing the opposite. It’s been growing again at about the same rate for the past two years, a study in Nature Geoscience noted.Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. — to discover recently that a short pattern of receding has now been reversed. 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. The Jakobshavn glacier, located in Greenland, began thinning around 2012 to nearly 130 feet annually. Nick Stokes stepped in it big time when he implied otherwise. Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary. “That was kind of a surprise. MICHELLE STARR.

The Jakobshavn glacier, located in Greenland, began thinning around 2012 to nearly 130 feet annually. 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. In addition to growing toward the ocean, the glacier was found to be slowing and thickening. This important glacier in Greenland is massive, measuring about 1 mile in thickness. Jakobshavn has spent decades in retreat… until scientists observed an unexpected advance between 2016 and 2017. Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. In 2017 he proposed a challenge. Study authors and outside scientists think this is temporary. 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. The glacier is still adding to global sea level rise - it continues to lose more ice to the … Jakobshavn has spent decades in retreat—that is, until scientists observed an unexpected advance between 2016 and 2017. The best you can do is vapid nonsense like this from liberal Climate Cult doyen like Neil deGrasse Tyson. The mainstream media seems to have somehow missed this.

But one of the critical glaciers in that storyline of decline has started growing again. 15,16 The speed at which Jakobshavn Isbræ glacier is retreating doubled from 1996 to 2005. in other words that is 112,000,000,000 tons. Jakobshavn is now thickening and advancing toward the ocean. 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. A NASA study reveals that a glacier in Greenland is now flowing slower, thickening, and advancing towards the ocean instead of retreating farther inland. Hi Tony. Melting of Greenland's glaciers contributes to sea-level rise, 2,3,4 and is expected to fuel global warming. 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. Categories Archives, Global Warming Hoax, Growing Glaciers, World News & Records 13 Comments. Scientists reacted with surprise, noting that they grew accustomed to the glacier receding. Several factors influence a glacier's melting rates, including air temperature and its interior structure. The climate cult Pharisees themselves are beholden to this redistributive scheme. Climate shock: 90 percent of the world’s glaciers are GROWING. The Jakobshavn is the glacier that dumps more ice in the ocean than any other in the Northern Hemisphere. 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. Among the world’s most dynamic glaciers is Greenland’s Jakobshavn Isbrae, which showed its active nature with … "Their findings -- especially about how quickly the ice responds -- will be important to projecting sea level rise in both the near and distant future. 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.
