“Except over a small area, it is generally understood, the glaciers of the world are retreating to the mountains. The glacier on Mount Sermiento in South America, which descended to the sea when Darwin found it in 1836, is now separated from the shore by a vigorous growth of timber. The Jacobshaven glacier in Greenland has retreated four miles since 1850, and the East glacier in Spitzbergen is more than a mile away from its original terminal”
“In March, a NASA-led research team announced that Jakobshavn Isbrae, is … thickening and advancing toward the ocean”
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.”
Greenland’s Petermann Glacier has grown more than 5km over the past nine years.
According to NASA, glaciers melt during the coldest years on record and they grow during the hottest years on record, and this bad news.
