Today quiet and untouched places are becoming more and more rare. On my first visit to Greenland, I was fascinated by the incredible power of nature that can be felt everywhere. But during the last years things have changed. The amount of icebergs is increasing savagely. Glaciers I'm visiting every year are retreating not meters but kilometers a year and the unending amount of ice seems to be endless. There is nothing more beautiful than an iceberg - everyone is unique and the light reflecting from its surface is magical. It's sad how close beauty and decay can be seen in an iceberg. This movie is is an appreciation to the ice - for me the most amazing aggregate state of water. Behind the scenes For this short film I travelled to Greenland with my drones several times. Always with the target of a certain region in a certain light situation. The shots from the calving glacier took me 4 days at the Eqi Glacier and over 70 battery charges for only 4 usable shots of a few seconds. It's a very hard intention to film the very right moment on a glacier front of about 6km wide - especially close up. But the hardest thing of flying in Greenland is the fact, that every 2-3 minutes the difference between the magnetic north and the geographic north (which are not the same place - especially so far north) causing a fatal p-gps flight error and the drone is flying away (also the camera's horizon). But at the end every single flight was worth it - filming Icebergs from above is one of the most beautiful things I've ever done. Additionally I used the drone to scout the landing spot and look for polar bears. The best thing for bears and humans is to not meet each other on shore.

New research shows that the massive ice sheets at the top and bottom of our planet are shrinking much faster than previously thought. The international study compiled satellite measurements over time and depict what one researcher described as a "devastating trajectory." William Brangham discussed the implications of the analysis with Twila Moon of the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

Greenland’s ice sheet spreads across 1.7 million square kilometres, covering around 80% of the world’s largest island. It undergoes an annual cycle, where ice melts in the summer and in the winter, water freezes and snow falls. This causes it to ‘shrink’ and ‘grow’ throughout the year. But rising global temperatures have pushed the ice sheet from an equilibrium: the ice created in winter no longer matches the ice lost in summer.

🤍 Peering into the thousands of frozen layers inside Greenland’s ice sheet is like looking back in time. Each layer provides a record of not only snowfall and melting events, but what the Earth’s climate was like at the dawn of civilization, or during the last ice age, or during an ancient period of warmth similar to the one we are experiencing today. Using radar data from NASA’s Operation IceBridge, scientists have built the first-ever comprehensive map of the layers deep inside the ice sheet.

The Greenland ice sheet's mass has rapidly declined in the last several years due to surface melting and iceberg calving. Research based on satellite data indicates that between 2002 and 2023, Greenland shed an average of 270 billion metric tons of ice per year, adding to global sea level rise. These images, created from GRACE and GRACE-FO data, show changes in Greenland ice mass since 2002. Orange and red shades indicate areas that lost ice mass, while light blue shades indicate areas that gained ice mass. White indicates areas where there has been very little or no change in ice mass since 2002. In general, higher-elevation areas near the center of Greenland experienced little to no change, while lower-elevation and coastal areas experienced over over 20 feet (6 meters) of ice mass loss (expressed in equivalent-water-height; dark red) over this 21-year period. The largest mass decreases occurred along the West Greenland coast. The average flow lines (gray; created from satellite radar interferometry) of Greenland’s ice converge into the locations of prominent outlet glaciers and coincide with areas of highest mass loss. This supports other observations that warming ocean waters around Greenland play a key role in contemporary ice mass loss. Download the visualization here: 🤍
In a remote area of northwest Greenland, an international team of scientists has made a stunning discovery, buried beneath a kilometer of ice. It’s a meteor impact crater, 300 meters deep and bigger than Paris or the Beltway around Washington, DC. It is one of the 25 largest known impact craters on Earth, and the first found under any of our planet’s ice sheets. The researchers first spotted the crater in July 2015, while they were inspecting a new map of the topography beneath Greenland's ice sheet that used ice-penetrating radar data primarily from Operation IceBridge, an ongoing NASA airborne mission to track changes in polar ice, and earlier NASA airborne missions in Greenland.

Melting Greenland: How the Inuit Way of Life is Vanishing with the Ice | ENDEVR Documentary Watch 'Extreme Weather Events - The New Normal?' here: 🤍 Globally snow is on retreat, especially since 1980. Most mountain glaciers are getting smaller. Snow cover is retreating earlier in the spring. Sea ice in the Arctic is shrinking in all seasons, most dramatically in summer. Reductions are reported in permafrost, seasonally frozen ground, and river and lake ice. Important coastal regions of the ice sheets on Greenland and West Antarctica, and the glaciers of the Antarctic Peninsula, are thinning and contributing to sea level rise. Home to 57,000 people and located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, Greenland is the largest island in the world. About 85 percent of the island's land surface is covered by ice but as the world knows that ice is melting and fast. The cracks in the ice are well documented as are the resultant rising sea levels.

We know the Earth's atmosphere is warming and it's thanks to us and our taste for fossil fuels. But how quickly is this melting the ice sheets, ice caps, and glaciers that remain on our planet? That's what listener David wants to know. Click here to subscribe to our channel 👉🏽 🤍 With the help of a team of climate scientists in Greenland, Marnie Chesterton goes to find the answer, in an icy landscape that's ground zero in the story of thawing. She discovers how Greenland’s ice sheet is sliding faster off land, and sees that the tiniest of creatures are darkening the ice surface and accelerating its melt. CrowdScience explores what we're in store for when it comes to melting ice. In the lead-up to yet another UN climate conference, we unpack what is contributing to sea level rise – from ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, to melting mountain glaciers and warming oceans. There's a lot of ice at the poles. The question is: how much of it will still be there in the future? Research Professor and climate scientist Jason Box from the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland shows us how much ice Greenland we've already committed ourselves to losing, even if we stopped burning all fossil fuels today. His team, including Jakob Jakobsen, show us how these scientists collect all this data that helps feed climate models and helps us all to understand how quickly the seas might rise. Professor Martyn Trantor from Aarhus University helps us understand why a darkening Greenland ice sheet would only add to the problem of melting. And climate scientist Ruth Mottram from the Danish Meteorological Institute breaks down how the ice is breaking down in Antarctica and other glaciers around the world.

Several days of unusually warm weather in northern Greenland have triggered rapid melting, made visible by the rivers of meltwater rushing into the ocean. CNN's René Marsh reports. #CNN #News
NASA observations show the dynamism of Greenland's Ice sheet in the changing elevation of its surfaces. Recent analysis of seven years of readings from NASA's ICESat satellite and four years of laser and and ice-penetrating radar data from NASA's airborne mission Operation IceBridge shows the changes taking place. In the animation featured here, the colors shown on the surface of the ice sheet represent the accumulated change in elevation since 2003. The light yellow over the central region of the ice sheet indicates a slight thickening due to snow. This accumulation, along with the weight of the ice sheet, pushes ice toward the coast. Thinning near coastal regions, shown in green, blue and purple, has increased over time and now extends into the interior of the ice sheet where the bedrock topography permits. As a result, there has been an average loss of 300 cubic kilometers of ice per year between 2003 and 2012. This animation portrays the changes occurring in the surface elevation of the ice sheet since 2003 in three drainage regions: the southeast, the northeast and the Jakobshavn regions. In each region, the time advances to show the accumulated change in elevation from 2003 through 2012.
UPDATE 2022: GREENLAND'S ICE MASS LOSS IS NOW 275 GIGATONS PER YEAR. Located in the Arctic near the North Pole, Greenland is covered by a massive ice sheet three times the size of Texas and a mile deep on average. Greenland is warming almost twice as fast as Antarctica, which is causing the ice to melt and raise global sea levels. NASA is monitoring Greenland’s ice sheet from high up in space to the ocean floor below to provide data for scientists studying the global impact of all its melting ice. :::LEARN MORE::: Key Indicators: Land Ice 🤍 Greenland’s Ice Island Alarm 🤍 Greenland’s Undercut Glaciers Melting Faster Than Thought 🤍 Rivers Are Draining Greenland Quickly 🤍 NASA Data Peers into Greenland’s Ice Sheet 🤍 Greenland Melt Ponds (photo story) 🤍 :::NASA MISSIONS & RESEARCH::: Operation IceBridge 🤍 GRACE-FO 🤍 ICESat 2 🤍 Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) 🤍 :::FOR EDUCATORS::: NASA Wavelength 🤍 🤍

Today we're exploring the geography lost under the glaciers of Greenland! *Isostatic rebound isn't expected to be too great over Greenland, and instead is greatest over parts of Canada, Scandinavia, and Antarctica, so I didn't include it. *Also whatever rebound occurred would likely be offset by Antarctica's continued melting. follow me on twitter 🤍theatlaspro support me on patron at: 🤍 music from: 🤍bensound.com
Sea levels are rising more than expected as Greenland’s glaciers melt faster than anticipated, according to new research by a team led by Shfaqat Abbas Khan, from the Technical University of Denmark. The research, based on data collected from a network of precise GPS stations, satellite data and modeling showed that as Greenland’s glaciers melt, channels of fast-flowing ice are formed, such as the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream. By 2100, this ice stream alone will contribute six times more to rising sea levels than previously suggested, an equivalent sea level rise as that caused by Greenland’s entire ice sheet over the past 50 years. Data was collected as far as 200 km inland, showing ice loss was also occurring within the heart of the glacier. Without climate action, researchers concluded this retreating of melting glaciers could continue for centuries. – Subscribe ➤ 🤍 Get more from New Scientist: Official website: 🤍 Facebook: 🤍 Twitter: 🤍 Instagram: 🤍 LinkedIn: 🤍 About New Scientist: New Scientist was founded in 1956 for “all those interested in scientific discovery and its social consequences”.

As the climate crisis worsens, some of the world's largest ice sheets in Greenland are rapidly melting, causing global sea levels to rise. For thousands of years, ice sheets would melt and glaciers would slowly slide into the sea. But the ice was replenished by snowfall, maintaining a relative balance. Now, warmer water is one factor melting ice shelves more quickly. Eric Sorensen explains how much zombie ice — areas of glaciers that are not being replenished with new ice as they melt — is driving up waters, and which Canadian communities are set to be directly affected.

Compilation of our most spectacular glacier calving and iceberg collapse videos! Huge chunks of ice (sometimes measuring more than 100 meters / 300 ft. in height over the water surface and hundreds of meters below) breaking off the glaciers and falling into the oceans can create tsunami-like waves, cause big icebergs to flip over or "shoot up". Glaciers and icebergs are melting in Greenland, Alaska, Argentina, Antarctica and all around the world – creating incredible spectacles for those lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time. More than 15 of these breathtaking glacier calving events are included in this montage. Of course all clips included are left with their original audio tracks; without music being added, you can listen to the cracking and melting of these ice giants. Glacier calving, also known as ice calving, or iceberg calving, is the breaking of ice chunks from the edge of a glacier. It is the sudden release and breaking away of a mass of ice from a glacier, iceberg, ice front, ice shelf, or crevasse. The ice that breaks away can be classified as an iceberg, but may also be a growler, bergy bit, or a crevasse wall breakaway. The entry of the ice into the water causes large, and often hazardous waves. The waves formed in locations like Johns Hopkins Glacier can be so large that boats cannot approach closer than 3 kilometres. These events have become major tourist attractions. Many glaciers terminate at oceans or freshwater lakes which results naturally with the calving of large numbers of icebergs. Calving of Greenland's glaciers produce 12,000 to 15,000 icebergs each year alone (Find out more here: 🤍 Greenland is home to the only permanent ice sheet outside Antarctica. The sheet covers 3/4 of Greenland's land mass. But in the last 25 years, the Greenland Ice Sheet is rapidly melting, having lost 3.8 trillion tons of ice between 1992 and 2018, a new study from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) finds. The melting ice has added 11 mm / 0.4 inches to sea level rise. Its cumulative 3.8 trillion tons of melted ice is equivalent to adding the water from 120 million Olympic-size swimming pools to the ocean every year (Find out more here: 🤍 The ice field of the Glacier Perito Moreno is the world's third largest reserve of fresh water. In the right time of the year big blocks of ice break off the glacier and drop into the water. The waves created by such glacier calving events often splash dozens of meters through the air. The glacier is one of Argentina's most beautiful natural wonders, the colors and shapes of the ice remind of a piece of art of Gaudi. The glacier itself is about 5 km (3.1 mi) wide and has an average height of 74 m (240 ft) above the surface of the water. ⏱️TIMESTAMPS⏱️ 0:00 Intro 0:09 Collapse Creates Tsunami-like Wave 📍 Location: Ilulissat Icefjord, Greenland 1:54 Glacier Calving & Tsunami Wave - Part 2 📍 Location: Ilulissat Icefjord, Greenland 3:50 Stunning Glacier Wall Calving | 📍 Location: Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina 4:44 Giant +70M Iceberg BREAKING OFF Glacier | 📍 Location: Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina 5:12 📍 Location: Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina 5:24 📍 Location: Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina 5:55 📍 Location: Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina 6:17 📍 Location: Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina 6:40 📍 Location: Perito Moreno Glacier, Patagonia, Argentina 6:44 Iceberg Flipping Over 1 📍 Location: Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, Iceland 7:21 Iceberg Flipping Over 2 📍 Location: Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, Iceland 7:46 Massive Iceberg Breaking Off Glacier📍 Location: Kongsfjorden, Svalbard, Norway 8:20 Close Calving 📍 Location: Lilliehöökbreen, Spitsbergen, Norway 8:40 Massive Glacier Calving 📍 Location: Margerie Glacier, Alaska (USA) 9:45 ‘Shooter Up’ Breaks Apart Spectacularly 📍 Location: Antarctica 10:41 Rolling Iceberg Creates Tsunami-like Wave 📍 Location: Ilulissat, Greenland 13:37 End Credits - A special thanks everyone who contributed to this montage: Baake, B. | Despeysse, J.-M. | David, J.-C. | Ieder, F. | Radetzki, Y | Wasilewska, O. | Gauffin, V. | Vamos Spanish Academy | Bußmann, B. | Winkhart, J. | Samaha, G. | Boreen, S. | Price, M. | Buts, S. | Bjerregaard, E. © Licet Studios GmbH – for further information about us, our content, or licensing / usage inquiries, you may check our website or contact us directly at: licensing🤍licetstudios.com.
Greenland’s ice: A trip back in time to see the future of climate change New videos DAILY: 🤍 Join Big Think Edge for exclusive video lessons from top thinkers and doers: 🤍 The Greenland ice sheet covers 80% of the island of Greenland. The sheet is 1,500 miles long, 700 miles across, and two miles thick. Scientists call it the largest laboratory in the world. By studying the minerals and gasses trapped in layers of ice, glaciologists can unravel mysteries of the past, such as what the temperature was 1,000 years ago, or search for clues as to why the Greenland Norse people vanished. Ice cores are a key to the past that also unlocks the future. Studying Greenland's ice sheet is yielding valuable information about the future of climate change. JON GERTNER Jon Gertner is a journalist and historian whose stories on science, technology, and nature have appeared in a host of national magazines. Since 2003 he has worked mainly as a feature writer for the New York Times Magazine. His first book, The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation, was a New York Times bestseller. TRANSCRIPT: JON GERTNER: It's hard for us here to imagine what the Greenland ice sheet is like. This is thousands of miles from the United States, as well as from Europe. It's a country that few people ever visit; it's a flyover maybe when you're going to Northern Europe you see this vast ice sheet. And Greenland's ice sheet, you might just imagine kind of a cupcake where the icing doesn't quite go to the edges. I mean, not only is Greenland the world's largest island, but this ice sheet, which is about 1,500 miles long and 700 miles across, covers well over 80% of the island. So there's really only this narrow strip of land around the edges that have been hospitable to settlements. Because nothing really lives on the ice sheet. This is a place where frozen temperatures get down as low as minus 80 degrees fahrenheit. It's a place that was considered forsaken by the native Inuit, a place that was somewhere you would stay away from, where evil spirits dwelled. And it was also a place that in its center if you consider this kind of icing on the cupcake, in the center it's 10,000 feet high. So it's this kind of giant dome of ice, and it's two miles thick. One scientist I spent a lot of time with in Greenland called it the world's largest laboratory. Which is a kind of strange phrase when you think of it as the world's largest island, and it's covered in ice. Well, why is that? But if you look back in the history it sort of offered this opportunity for the study of the one remaining ice sheet in the northern hemisphere; the other is down south in Antarctica. But it also offered some of those early scientists a way to look back in time. Because ice, in the words of a lot of scientists, is depositional. It creates a kind of record of all the deposits that fell on it through snow. And we think, OK, well it has old snow. But it's more than that. It actually holds ancient gases. It contains records from ancient volcanic eruptions. And the way we began to access that information, because it really is information, was to drill into the ice. And the first people to do this in a significant way, they weren't actually drilling into the ice. There was this guy Ernst Sorge, who was stationed with Alfred Wegener's team in the center of the ice sheet in 1930. And he began, literally, he was camped out under the ice with another guy two other guys, actually and he began to literally dig down with a shovel. He dug a staircase into the ice. He dug about 50 meters 50 feet, excuse me, down into the ice. And he began to carve out blocks and bring them back up to where they were sleeping, and he would measure them on a scale. And he wanted to measure their density. And what he discerned was that there was a very kind of discernible variation between wintertime-density snow and summertime. And he could, by doing this, sort figure out exactly how many years back in time he was going. So that was the big first step. OK, you can actually measure these sort of stripes in the ice, if you think of it that way, by kind of going down deep. And after that it became much more ambitious. In the 1950s and 1960s scientists really brought drilling rigs up there. They tried to figure out how you could kind of drill down and pull up a core, which might sound easier than you think, but it's actually quite hard because you want to retain the pristine nature of the ice...

Hey everyone, welcome back to my channel today we're going to talk about the greenland ice sheets that are melting fast. The melting ice is contributing significantly to rising sea levels and poses a potential biggest threat not only to low-lying coastal communities, but to the entire global population. What are the true causes of the melting ice in Greenland?. What impact will they have on our future? In this video, we'll uncover the answers, and provide you the most recent information on Greenland If the Greenland ice sheet were to completely melt and the meltwater were to completely flow into the ocean, then global sea level would rise by about seven meters. The ocean would cover all the coastal cities. And land area would shrink significantly. Earth would rotate more slowly, with the length of the day becoming longer than it is today, by about 2 milliseconds. #iceland #shockingfacts #greenland If You Enjoyed Watching This Video Then Please Make Sure You Check Out Some Of Our Other Videos And Also hit That SUBSCRIBE Button BREAKING NEWS : RADIO SIGNALS coming directly from mysterious alien planet - 🤍 MOON LIFE : IS IT POSSIBLE TO LIVE ON THE MOON - 🤍 Channel link - 🤍 Greenland ice melting, Greenland news 2023, glacier calving, glacier calving tsunami, glacier breaking off, glacier collapse, largest glacier calving ever filmed, icebergs, tsunami, iceberg breaking up, climate change, greenland, antarctica, global warming, melting, ice, terrifying discovery, scientists announced, science news, space news, universe news, nasa, history, neil degrasse tyson ⚠️Disclaimer: Please be aware that all of the footage we utilised in our videos were modified in accordance with YouTube's fair use policies.

Since the late 1970's, NASA has been monitoring changes in the Greenland Ice Sheet. Recent analysis of data from both the ICESat satellite and an ongoing airborne mission called Operation IceBridge show us how the surface elevation of the ice sheet has changed. This animation portrays the changes occurring in the surface elevation of the ice sheet since 2003 in three drainage regions: the southeast, the northeast and the Jakobshavn regions. In each region, the time advances to show the accumulated change in elevation from 2003 through 2012. For more information, visit nasa.gov/icebridge.

LEEDS, U.K. — Scientists published a new study in the journal Nature Communications, in which they show that Greenland’s ice sheet is melting at such a fast pace that it’s heightening worldwide flood risks. The study, which was published on Monday, November 1, found that the Greenland ice sheet has lost more than 3.5 trillion tons of ice over the past decade, which increased global sea levels by one centimeter. This one ice sheet contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by 6 meters, or 20 feet, and it has been experiencing an increasing number of extreme melting events over the past 40 years. The new research is the first to use satellite data to detect Greenland ice sheet runoff. The satellite images showed significant annual variation in ice melt and showed that heat waves were increasingly a major cause of ice loss — above and beyond global temperature increases. In 2012 alone, for example, when changes in atmospheric patterns caused unusually warm air to hover over the ice sheet for weeks, 527 billion tonnes of ice was lost. Lead author of the study, Thomas Slater of the University of Leeds, said: “As our climate warms, it’s reasonable to expect that the instances of extreme melting in Greenland will happen more often.” SOURCES: Nature Communications, AFP 🤍 🤍
We speak with glaciologist David Bahr, who co-authored a shocking new study this week revealing Greenland's melting ice sheet will likely contribute almost a foot to global sea level rise by the end of the century. The report, published in the journal Nature Climate Change, finds that even if the world were to halt all greenhouse gas emissions today, 120 trillion tons of Greenland's "zombie ice" are doomed to melt. Bahr says if global emissions continue to rise, global sea level rise just from Greenland glacial melt could reach two-and-a-half feet. "The faster we can get to net zero, the better we will all be," he says. Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on over 1,500 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

The Greenland ice sheet is one of only two polar ice caps and covers around 80% of Greenland. Historically, the ice sheet was rather deserted as Greenlanders preferred to stay on sea ice with access to fertile waters below. Now, thanks to aircraft, boats, and most importantly, wanderlust, the Greenland Ice Sheet has since become a popular spot for travelers in search of unmistakable Arctic adventure. You can see the Greenland ice sheet from almost all towns across Greenland. If you would like to experience it up close though, the only road that leads to the Greenland ice sheet is located in Kangerlussuaq. Although a bit bumpy it delivers you directly to the edge of the ice sheet and offers views that are unique only to Greenland.

Rising sea levels from melting glaciers and ice sheets pose an increasing threat to coastal communities worldwide. A new analysis of high-resolution satellite observations takes a major step forward in assessing this risk by confirming theoretical predictions and computational models of sea-level changes used to forecast climate-change-driven impacts. “Using sea-surface-height observations from satellites, in the way we have, independently verifies observations of Arctic and Greenland ice-mass loss and allows us to tease apart contributions to global sea-level rise from individual ice sheets and glacier systems," said Sophie Coulson, a postdoctoral researcher in fluid dynamics and geophysics at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Coulson is lead author of a paper in the journal Science on detecting the “fingerprint” of sea-level change attributable to the melting of the Greenland ice sheet. “Accurately predicting regional patterns of sea-level change is absolutely central to understanding the impacts of future climate change and forecasting hazards.” Read the news release here. 🤍 LA-UR-22-32255'
