More Ice in it?
Ilulissat - (Danish: Jakobshavn from founder Jakob Severin) a UNESCO-listed glacier, is shedding ice into the sea faster than ever before, according to one of Denmark's top experts on glaciology.
Andreas Peter Ahlstroem, a researcher with the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland institute, said the glacier has receded by more than 10 miles (15 km) since 2001. "We should aim to at least reduce CO2 emissions and limit the damage done," he said.
The ice front itself is some 40km inside Ilulissat glacierl is the most productive glacier in the Northern Hemisphere pushing out some 16 cubic km of ice annually at a speed of 20 to 30 meters per day. The ice starts its journey with a thundering crash as it falls into the fiord, before moving more sedately out to sea.
All dramatic stuff, no wonder it is a tourist attraction. And yes the glacier is retreating, just as it has been since before Henry Ford invented Global Warming...
