And by the way the ESA story was without the name of the Author, now you know why!
Toggle Commented 2 days ago on Jakobshavn record retreat at Arctic Sea Ice
ESA managed to hi-jack the calving story, I guess the main reason for doing that was that the original story released in Arctic Sea Ice Forum https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,154.msg60933.html#msg60933 was based on USGS material and NASA, that was not a pretty ESA thing to do!!!

Sorry I meant the discussion in Ingenøren?
Toggle Commented 5 days ago on Jakobshavn record retreat at Arctic Sea Ice
And DMI did not mention it either?

But I am surprised one of the biggest or rather most important tourist- and natural sites in the Kingdom of Denmark, was not mentioned to my knowledge in any danish media, but then other the other hand I am not that impressed with them anyways!

Neven thanks for showing this event so quickly and thanks to A-Team for the additional documentation. I am convinced this is largest single calving event that ever happened at Jakobshavn since the glacier went dual (southern and northern branch). My present estimate is Jakobshavn lost somewhere between 11 and 12,5 km2 from August 14 to August 15 2015.

Zachariae Isstrøm update. Heavy calving activity at Zachariae: http://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,400.msg54812.html#msg54812
We just had a seasonal around the 1st of June calving at Jakobshavn: https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,154.msg52916.html#msg52916
Very interesting: Just have one question for the "No slowing down of Jakobshavn Isbræ in 2014: Results from feature-tracking five Greenland outlet glaciers using Landsat-8 data and the ImGRAFT toolbox" presentation? Why is there no mention about Zachariae Isstrøm? (more important than most of the other glaciers observed, at least compared to 79?)
How about a trip to Jakobshavn Isbræ? https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,1223.msg49746.html#msg49746

Neven, I am surprised you wouldnt call it a max yet? (I know I am in deep water now, but luckily I am a reasonable swimmer)

Dont waste your time guys, watch the facts!

"It’s no surprise that Arctic sea ice is thinning." And IJIS is already in a melt mood with record lows: https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,230.msg46649.html#msg46649

A massive calving happened between February 12 and February 19 2015 at Jakobshavn: https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,154.msg45673.html#msg45673

Yes Christoffer, we are handling km2 like bankers are handling billions.

Steensby Gletscher, North Greenland. A sizeable (~32 km2)calving happened a few days ago, and is about 50% larger than the calving in 2012, this only the 2nd calving ever reported. https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,388.msg34486.html#msg34486

I migth be irrational, but where I live Scandianavia, of course ice do thin during the spring, but in the end of that process it suddenly disappear overnite, in most cases. And since we watch sea ice from above (from satellites)it will look the same way!
Toggle Commented Aug 5, 2014 on Poof, it's gone at Arctic Sea Ice
It is not that I want to repeat myself, but I always believed the sea ice will disappear overnight, in the same way lake and river ice behaves. So what Epiphyte discovered I totally agree upon, despite what other say about slush, in this phase it behaves like slush, no matter the size of it.

Yes it is very much like the scenes I see / watch when fishing trouts/salmons in rivers in Norway.
To add to your work, there is is still a lot we don't know anything about?
