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)

BTW here is some of the facts: https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,230.msg46763.html#msg46763

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

John, Other noteworthy elements of agriculture in Denmark, swines are far more common than Danes in Denmark.

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!

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?
Great work A-Team, please co-write on Arctic Sea Ice Forum: https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,154.250.html Espen
I am not surprised?
Anyway it is frustrating to know we had one or more major calvings between June 8 and June 21, probably beyond the maximum retreat point set in September 2013, but we don't have proper documentation, it is only based on ASAR and Modis 250m images.

Neven, At least this proves someone from NASA read about it? ;)Thanks for your and others comments. By the way I have posted my impression of Jakobshavn vs. Zachariae Isstrøm What is all the fuss about?: https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,400.msg28208.html#msg28208
Maybe we should use Manhattan NV as a reference point in the future? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan,_Nevada
Steve, I am not sure when that calving mentioned in "Chasing Ice" happened, too many dates are mentioned, so it is hard to quantify the calving? But I have made an animation showing what I believe is the furthest retreat observed at Jakobshavn (Sept 27 2013): https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,154.msg27775.html#msg27775
