P-Maker thanks for your insights. I called for them and got them and updated the blog post as I said I would to reflect them. I did not have foehn listed initially, nor did I say that I did. I suspected that was the case but waited for a comment from Ruth Mottram before adjusting. I also received input from Jason Box suggesting the opacity is from aeration. I am sure I will get more good feedback and will update the blog accordingly. This was a search for an answer . Notice the conclusion in terms of why this is important I have added. That is melange removal from in front of glaciers does impact velocity and calving rates as Moon et al (2015) observed. http://blogs.agu.org/fromaglaciersperspective/2016/01/17/what-is-up-in-disko-ummanaq-bay-greenland-this-week/

I realize there was foehn and I was look at the Kan stations because they provide a longer term temperature record for perspective. The post indicates foehn conditions. http://blogs.agu.org/fromaglaciersperspective/2016/01/17/what-is-up-in-disko-ummanaq-bay-greenland-this-week/

Looking for insights regarding interesting developments noticed by Tenney in Disko/Uummannaq Bay this week. http://blogs.agu.org/fromaglaciersperspective/2016/01/17/what-is-up-in-disko-ummanaq-bay-greenland-this-week/

The MODIS for 5/10 indicate the sea ice extends less than 15 km beyond the terminus of Glaciers in Melville Bugt, including Steenstrup Glacier. Will we get more new islands this summer. http://blogs.agu.org/fromaglaciersperspective/2015/05/04/island-separates-from-greenland-ice-sheet-in-2014-steenstrup-glacier/

I will be at Moscone West 3005 this morning Global Climate change and cryospheric systems
What did Bieber do, I missed it. This is certainly an event I expected this summer, but not this early. There is not a next rift like there was in 2010, indicating the next likely calving point. It is certainly hard to keep up with the changes on an ice sheet that is notably slow to change.
