      Jökulhlaups in and from an ice-dammed lake at the northern margin of Russell Glacier, West Greenland, marked the onset of a renewed jökulhlaup cycle after 20 years of stability. We present a record of successive ice-dammed lake drainage events and associated ice-margin dynamics spanning 25 years. Robust calculations of lake volumes and peak discharges are made, based on intensive. (The highest peak on the true left of Gully Glacier.

Geography. This glacier has its terminus south of Disko Bay and north of Arfersiorfik drains the Greenland ice sheet (Greenlandic: Sermersuaq) westwards into the Tasiusarsuaq.

The photos were rediscovered in a castle outside Copenhagen, Denmark, and they have allowed Anders Bjork and. “Most of the settlements which were founded in Greenland, in about the year 1, remained inhabited until well into “The Little Ice Age,” which started in and lasted for 1950.

Glacier mass balance and the response of glaciers to climate change. ciological field sites were in Greenland (e.g., Chamberlin, a, b); and Harold F. Reid of Johns Hopkins University, who measured glacier flow rates in Glacier Bay, Alaska, and encapsulated his insights into remarkably sophisticated contributions on glacier physics (e.g., Reid,).

Glacier field studies in southwestern Canada began in. The glacier calves around 46 cubic kilometers of ice every year. If you melted this amount of ice, the resulting amount of water could cover the annual consumption of water in the USA.

The glacier produces ten percent of all the icebergs in Greenland. The largest icebergs calved by the glacier are the size of cubic kilometers of ice. The Frozen Echo: Greenland and the Exploration of North America, ca.

The history of Greenland is a history of life under extreme Arctic conditions: currently, an ice cap covers about 80 percent of the island, restricting human activity largely to the coasts.

The first humans are thought to have arrived in Greenland around BC. Their descendants apparently died out and were succeeded by several other groups migrating from continental North America.

During the past ten years, the Geological Survey of Greenland (GGU) has measured glacier mass-balance parallel with basic climate elements. Field stations were operated near the margin of the Greenland ice sheet in Johan Dahl Land –, at Qamanârssüp sermia – and at Tasersiaq since Cited by: 9.

This tour takes in the essence of West Greenland starting in the picturesque town of Ilulissat, home of the UNESCO designated Ilulissat Ice Fjord. You will also visit the amazing Eqi glacier and stay in the unique cabins beside the glacier.

A team of scientists has captured on video a four-mile iceberg breaking away from a glacier in eastern Greenland, an event that points to one of the forces behind global sea-level rise.

Eqalorutsit Glacier is one of the most active glaciers in South Greenland and you will hear a constant roaring and rumbling from the glacier and the icebergs and ice floes that it calves into the fjord.

At low tide icebergs strand on the sandy beach and a walk among these massive, blue and crystal-like blocks is truly an extraordinary experience. Jakobshavn Isbræ (Jakobshavn Glacier) is moving ice from the Greenland ice sheet into the ocean at a speed that appears to be the fastest ever.

Long-forgotten aerial photographs of Greenland from the s, rediscovered in a castle outside Copenhagen, have allowed researchers to construct a. Enhancing our understanding of glacier behavior and how it relates to climate change requires long time series of observations to establish glacier evolution over many decades.

In support of this goal, this project aims to create a digital library of historic images of glaciers in Alaska and Greenland from Cornell's R. Tarr and O. von. The Jakobshavn Glacier is so closely monitored because it is responsible for draining a large portion (about percent) of the Greenland ice sheet.

Greenland is the world’s largest contributor to sea level rise — according to NASA, it is contributing billion tons of ice to the ocean every year, nearly enough to cause 1 millimeter of.Cornell University Library Digital Collections.
