More Greenland glaciers threatened by climate change than previously thought

New maps of Greenland’s coastal seafloor and bedrock beneath its massive ice sheet show that two to four times as many coastal glaciers are at risk of accelerated melting due to climate change as previously thought.

EU-PolarNet White paper workshop

Last week, EU-PolarNet convened 50 experts in La Cristalera, a conference facility which the Autonomous University of Madrid owns in Miraflores de la Sierra to develop and draft white papers on Polar research topics of high societal relevance. These white papers are an important milestone for EU-PolarNet and are a key step towards the…

– Glaciers flowing into fjords release fresh water deep into the water column. The fresh water rises to the surface and thus drives deeper-lying nutrient-rich ocean water up to the phytoplankton in the upper water layers. This sustains a high production of fish. The photo shows a so-called ‘upwelling’ – the ice-free area near the glacier edge. (Photo: Lorenz Meire).
– Glaciers retreating on land release fresh water into the surface waters of the fjords. This prevents the water in the fjord from mixing and nutrients from the deeper-lying nutrient-rich water from reaching the phytoplankton in the upper water layers. This may lead to fewer fish, and researchers now warn that in the near future, many glaciers will retreat so far back that they end up on land. (Photo: Lorenz Meire).

Melting glaciers may reduce Greenland fishery

Glaciers that flow directly into the ocean provide additional nutrients to the surface water layer of fjords. This sustains a large fish stock. But when the glaciers melt and retreat on land, there is a great risk of a decline in fish stocks.

Gletsjere er vitale for Grønlands fiskeri

Gletsjere, som smelter direkte ud i havet, supplerer fjorden med livsvigtige næringsstoffer, som er med til at opretholde nogle af Grønlands mest produktive hellefisk-fiskerier.

Er vi på vej ind i en ny istid?

Normalt varer en istid 80-90.000 år, mens en mellemistid varer 12-15.000 år. Vores nuværende mellemistid startede for 11.700 år siden. Betyder det, at vi er på vej ind i en ny istid?
