Underground boiler melt the Greenland ice

August 12, 2013. Climate scientists report that an unusually thin crust beneath the surface of Greenland partly explains the abnormally high rate of melting of its ice cap, as the hot magma mass beneath the surface act as one giant "kettle", reports the journal Nature Geoscience.

The temperature at the foot of the glacier, and, accordingly, their condition, at the same time depend on the flow of heat from the Earth's interior and temperature fluctuations on the surface. With this in Greenland there are areas where the foot of the glacier is melting, and which at the same time are

Experts Katun Reserve regained weather station closed almost 80 years ago

Employees of the Katun Reserve in the Altai Mountains restored to the weather station observations of glacial areas, which was closed in 1935, said the reserve.

"In the Katun Reserve on the place of the closed nearly 80 years ago, the state weather station" Katun "is set at the foot of Belukha automatic meteopost. During a scientific expedition, which took place in the first half of July, the reserve staff have established the modern equipment that will automatically record the temperature and humidity and the amount of rainfall in the inaccessible mountainous area, "- said in a

The permafrost in Antarctica is melting at an accelerating rate

29.07.2013

Intriguing news again came from Antarctica — the first time scientists have found that the permafrost in Antarctica is melting at an accelerating rate, and this is not due to global warming, according to RIA-Novosti reported with reference to the journal Scientific Reports.

Scientists led by Joseph Levy (Joseph Levy) from the University of Texas at Austin (USA) gathered data on the melting of underground ice in Garwood Valley, located in the Dry Valleys of McMurdo in Victoria Land, Antarctica.

Scientists have found that the rate of melting permafrost rose from 2001 to

Crack Antarctic ice increased

Crack Antarctic ice increased Facts

Recently published satellite images of the 30-kilometer crack in the Antarctic Glacier with the potential to become "an island of ice" the size of New York.

Pine Island Glacier crack was first discovered in October 2011, and the picture made NASA satellites was received on 12 November. According to the scientists, NASA crack was 80 feet wide and about 60 meters deep. Over time, a huge iceberg should be separated from the glacier and into the open ocean.

It is believed that the crack in the ice was the result of natural processes, but the

The tragedy of the Titanic could be repeated

A huge array of ice Ward Hunt, who for three thousand years, has joined the Canadian territory of Nunavut (Ellesmere Island) with Greenland has broken up into many pieces, which were to drift in the Beaufort Sea. These icebergs can be a danger to passing ships — the tragedy of «Tikanika» despite the remoteness, remember everything. Stretch of sea where drift ice blocks, navigable enough — there are major ports in Greenland. The original shelf area is 388 square meters. kilometers. Obviously, the glacier has broken up due to climate change.

Study glacier Ngozumpa

Study glacier Ngozumpa Facts

Ngozumpa glacier in Nepal begins to descend from the sixth highest mountain peak of Cho Oyu. The glacier is not impressive in its gray appearance: he strewn rubble of rocks falling from the surrounding slopes. However Ngozumpa of particular interest to scientists around the world.

In the last ten years, the temperature in the Nepalese Himalayas is growing much faster than the world. Most glaciers to show signs of reduction and thinning ice mass, forming a huge amount of meltwater. In particular, accumulating on the surface of the glacier Ngozumpa, melt water slowly seeps into the
