Claim: Climate Change Driving Snow Cover Loss and Increased “Greening” in the European Alps

Peer-Reviewed Publication AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE (AAAS) Satellite imagery of the European Alps spanning the past 38 years shows that climate change is driving declines in snow…

Claim: Model Pinpoints Glaciers at Risk of Collapse Due to Climate Change

Meltwater seeping beneath Arctic glaciers puts thickest and fastest at risk of sudden collapse

Thermodynamics and ice melt flows

When the process is considered to be compression of subcooled liquid water isolated from interactions with its surroundings, the temperature increase is estimated to be about 0.01 K per 100…

Study: Ice flow is more sensitive to stress than previously thought

The rate of glacier ice flow is more sensitive to stress than previously calculated, according to a new study by MIT researchers that upends a decades-old equation used to describe…

Half-Truths About Retreating Glaciers

… there is wealth of opposing, peer-reviewed, published, scientific evidence demonstrating that changing patterns of moisture transport control the ebbs and flows of glaciers – not global average temperature. So…

Claim: “Blue Blob” Near Iceland Could Slow Glacial Melting

Chilly seawater may slow ice loss on the island until 2050, then warming and melting may acceleratePeer-Reviewed Publication AMERICAN GEOPHYSICAL UNION American Geophysical Union15 February 2022AGU Release No. 22-11For Immediate…

Seawater seep may be speeding glacier melt, sea level rise

“Kilometers of intrusion-induced basal melt can cause projected ice sheet volume loss to more than double over the next century.

To Shrink or not to Shrink, That is the Question.

BOTTOM LINE: in the very near future, USGS will probably publish data indicating GNP’s glaciers are steadily melting, in line with the climate-change theory; but USGS’ decision to delay measuring…

More Evidence: Glaciers Existing Today Were Absent For Nearly All Of The Last 10,000 Years

So, once again, there is no evidence to support the alarmist claims that modern glacier extents are unprecedented or even unusual relative to the last 10,000 years – including the…

Claim: Air Bubbles Sound Climate Change’s Impact on Glaciers #ASA181

“Recording the underwater sounds from a melting terminus will open the door to long-term acoustical monitoring of ice loss, and how it is linked to water temperature,” said Deane. “The…

Melting Reveals Alpine Structures Buried by Glaciers After WW1

The Washington Post forgot to mention the mid 1900s glacial advance which covered the WW1 structures with ice in the first place (see above).

A Potted History of Glaciers

Reposted from NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT NOVEMBER 10, 2021 By Paul Homewood A friend recently suggested that “melting glaciers” must surely prove “global warming is true”. It…

Why did glacial cycles intensify a million years ago?

Our discovery pins the origin of this change to the Northern Hemisphere and the ice sheets that evolved there as driving this shift towards the climate patterns we observe today.…

No Mention Of The Little Ice Age, Justin?

Many scientists have closely measured and studied glaciers throughout Alaska, and the conclusions have always been the same. Alaskan glaciers, which grew enormously during the Little Ice Age, began rapid…

1,000 Years of Glacial Ice Reveal ‘Prosperity and Peril’ in Europe

A new study analyzed pollen, spores, charcoal and other pollutants frozen in the Colle Gnifetti glacier on the Swiss and Italian border. The research found changes in the composition of these microfossils…

15,000-year-old viruses discovered in Tibetan glacier ice

“We know very little about viruses and microbes in these extreme environments, and what is actually there,” Thompson said. “The documentation and understanding of that is extremely important: How do…

Claim: Earth’s cryosphere shrinking by 87,000 square kilometers per year

AMERICAN GEOPHYSICAL UNION Research News WASHINGTON–The global cryosphere–all of the areas with frozen water on Earth–shrank by about 87,000 square kilometers (about 33,000 square miles), a area about the size…

How scientists are using drones to lower the risk of catastrophic flooding from large glacial lakes

The research will enhance the reliability of predictive models to identify potential glacial lake flood hazards. It will also identify areas where remediation work, such as the building of additional…

Pine Island Glacier’s ice shelf is ripping apart, speeding up key Antarctic glacier

“The recent changes in speed are not due to melt-driven thinning; instead they’re due to the loss of the outer part of the ice shelf,” Joughin said. “The glacier’s speedup…

Claim: Global glacier retreat has accelerated

Study based on stereo satellite images As a basis for the study, the research team used imagery captured on board NASA’s Terra satellite, which has been orbiting the Earth once…

Exploration of ocean currents beneath the ‘Doomsday Glacier’
