LONDON — An iceberg four miles (six kilometres) wide has broken off from a glacier in eastern Greenland and scientists have captured the dramatic event on video.
New York University professor David Holland, an expert in atmospheric and ocean science, told The Associated Press that “this is the largest event we’ve seen in over a decade in Greenland.”
A June 22 video of the incident was taken by his wife, Denise Holland of NYU’s Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. They had camped by the Helheim Glacier for weeks to collect data to better project sea level changes due to global warming.
Holland said Wednesday that the time-lapse video, which is speeded up 20 times, shows “3% of the annual ice loss of Greenland occur in 30 minutes.”
“It sounded like rockets going off,” he said, describing it as “a very complex, chaotic, noisy event.”
While the couple is studying Greenland, he said that “the real concern is in Antarctica, where everything is so big the stakes are much higher.”
In northwestern Greenland, another large iceberg has apparently grounded on the sea floor near the village of Innarsuit. Residents with houses near the shore were prepared to evacuate if necessary.

Ah yes, "PROJECT" - because there is NONE to measure NOW.

I think it's funny when advocacy science pushers get all concerned about the Greenland ice sheet disappearing, even though it wasn't even there 2000 years ago.

So Jesus Christ was reincarnated into an Ice Sheet?

So this is the second coming?

climate change deniers do not believe in climate change.

It is their job to say so many times every day.

Quit being such a retard, if you're able to. Nobody here is denying climate change is real. Unfortunately for you, you're dumb enough to believe that climate change can only happen if humans cause it. But that's what uneducated, advocacy science pushers believe.

What's this got to do with "climate change"? It's just an iceberg.

I don't understand what the manoeuvrability of my oral commissures has to do with a story about an iceberg which is just an iceberg which has nothing to do with global warming, which doesn't exist.

And yours is to bore us with your stupid quasi-religious pseudo scientific beliefs......

Showing me a picture of an iceberg and telling me it's evidence of global warming is the exact equivalent of showing me a picture of a toadstool and telling me it's evidence of fairies.

A sure sign the Northern Hemisphere is in a cyclical cooling phase. This type of 'calving' is caused when the mass of a glacier grows beyond its ability to maintain its structural integrity. More proof that AGW is a hoax.

Better yet show evidence that this iceberg is different than the other thousands floating around the North Atlantic at this time of year

Big pieces breaking off and floating around do not make it a growing glacier.

Glaciers will only calve ice that is already floating in water. Glaciers on land cannot calve icebergs. Obviously, this glacier is being pushed offshore by the growing ice inland.

Rivers of liquid water under the icefields are speeding the glaciers to the sea.

Walter needs to deny climate change at every opportunity just like the rest of them.

It how they identify and flock off together to White Guy Utopia.

Actually it does. I think I remember 600 billions tons, extra tons, acumulation of snow for this past year alone and it has not stopped because of summer.

Ice anomalies on Greenland as eight billion tons snaps off the end of calving Helheim Glacier, but at the same time Greenland gains 600 billion tons of ice since Sept 2017 and five feet of snow is forecast for Greenland over the next week. Incredible 15+ foot thick ice west of Baffin Island, Arctic temperatures below the 30 year average and June global temperatures are below 2017 June temperatures.
