  1. New data for 2014 concerning the retreat of the calving front of the Jakobshavn glacier, Greenland, on the NASA Earth Observatory site. [...]
  2. Link to an article on the growing interest for the 2014 melting season.  [...]
  3. Here's an article appearing on Bloomberg Magazine on April 2014 discussing the implications of melting for oil and mining in Greenland.  [...]
  4. A study published on Nature Communications points out to the potential impact of melting over Greenland and phytoplankton growth in the surrounding sea. This might have potential implications for CO2 capture. The article is freely available here. The title, authors and abstract are here following:Ice sheets as a significant source of highly reactive nanoparticulate iron to the oceansJon R. Hawkings, Jemma L.

  5. The paper presents results concerning the detection of widespread ice-covered valleys that extend significantly deeper below sea level and farther inland than previously thought. This has potential implications for ice dynamics and how Greenland might contribute to sea level rise in the future, through the ocean thermal forcing. The paper can be found here. Here's the title, authors and abstract:Deeply incised submarine glacial valleys beneath the Greenland ice sheetM. Morlig [...]
