Akunnat is a former community in southern Greenland on the island of Akonemiok or Qeqertarsuatsiaat, 3 miles ( km) from the trading post of Fisher's Inlet (Danish: Fiskernæsset, the modern settlement of Qeqertarsuatsiaat).

Finally, on-site weather observations at research stations throughout Greenland have verified the warmer temperatures that correlate with the surface ice melting. Greenland climatological data The publication shown below contains climatological and geophysical data for various locations within Greenland. The description under thr title shows the dates of coverage of the publication, the parameters you can find in the data, and a list of the volumes that the Library holds with links to the years for which.

  Greenland is a located between the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, and although it is technically a part of the North American continent, historically it has been linked with European countries like Denmark and Norway. Today, Greenland is considered an independent territory within the Kingdom of Denmark, and as such, Greenland is dependent on Denmark for the majority of its gross domestic Author: Amanda Briney. Greenland’s climate is an Arctic one and offers large variations in temperature and rainfall. The weather can change suddenly and vary greatly over short distances. THE WIND IN GREENLAND. Generally-speaking it is not that windy in Greenland. Many days are . Ice acts like a protective cover over the Earth and our oceans. These bright white spots reflect excess heat back into space and keep the planet cooler. In theory, the Arctic remains colder than the equator because more of the heat from the sun is reflected off the ice, back into space. Glaciers.

Greenland (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Nunaat, pronounced [kalaːɬit nunaːt]; Danish: Grønland, pronounced [ˈkʁɶnˌlænˀ]) is the world's largest island, located between the Arctic and Atlantic oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic is an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been Calling code: +   Surface-melt conditions on the Greenland Ice Sheet on July 1, (left), and J (right). Based on observations by the Special Sensor Microwave/Imagers from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) satellites. Ice undergoing surface melt appears blue, and ice that is not melting appears white. As Greenland warms, the ice that covers it melts and flows into the oceans. In order to study melting trends on Greenland, researchers at NASA developed a "melt index" which is the number of days that melting occurred multiplied by the melting area. There is a .   Over the course of a four day blitz that started on July 8 th, surface melting of Greenland’s vast glaciers went from affecting 40 percent of the surface area up to a staggering 97 : Colin Schultz.

Heatwaves amplify near-record levels of ice melt in northern hemisphere This article is more than 9 months old Greenland’s ice sheet shrank more in past month than in.

The Greenland ice sheet is a major contributor to global sea level rise and plays a crucial role in the surface energy budget, climate and weather of the Arctic.

Estimates of the spatial extent of melt across the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) are obtained from brightness temperatures measured by the Special Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder (SSMIS. A True Book: Earth Science series presents fascinating facts and fun activities that will engage the budding earth scientist, while exploring the fields of geology, meteorology, ecology, and more.

This series includes an age appropriate (grades ) introduction to curriculum-relevant subjects and a robust resource section that encourages independent study/5(5). observations of northern lights during from October to April. Another survey of meteorological data from Greenland and Labrador of the period was made available for the public in Voigt’s Magazin für Naturkunde Professor Friedrich Kämtz () from the university in Halle (Germany) included.

Greenland ice sheet melt is a large contributor to rising global sea level and melt is dependent on surface air temperature. Arctic temperatures are strongly coupled to clouds but spatial connections between clouds and temperature have yet to be established across : Michael R.

The temperatures reported at Greenland Ranch during the period of hot weather from Julywere not consistent with meteorological conditions in the region at the time of observation. Second, neighboring weather sites did not post temperatures that were unusually hot. “The extreme temperature of °F measured on J did not correlate with observations.

by Elisha Kent Kane. Northice in Greenland was a British research station for two years in the early s. A measurement by a remote weather station at Klinck, Greenland operated by the Space and Engineering Center of the University of Wisconsin, Madison between registered a low temperature of °C (°F) on 22 December The southern tip of the island gives Greenland its color, with lush green pastures and mountains surrounding cities such as Qaqortoq, Nanortalik, and Narsarsuaq, which as the northernmost of the region's major destinations sees temperatures nearing 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) in July and only gets down to 12 F (11 below 0 C) in January.

In Julya heat wave swept across Greenland, resulting in extensive melting of surface ice and flooding; this is shown to have been enhanced by liquid clouds forming in Cited by:   Greenland's ice sheet is melting six times faster than it was in the s, according to Between July 31 and Aug.

Strong southerly winds forced mild air to Greenland and beyond, but it wasn’t their warmth that caused the polynya. “Most Arctic warmings last a day or two,” says Moore (pictured left). “This lasted a week, and these were the warmest temperatures and strongest winds observed in north Greenland since observations began in the s.

Last Thursday, August 1, the Greenland ice sheet experienced its largest single-day volume loss on record, sending an estimated billion tons of ice pouring into the : Meilan Solly.

Greenland’s surface melting in was intense, far in excess of any earlier year in the satellite record since In Julya very unusual weather event occurred. For a few days, 97% of the entire ice sheet indicated surface melting.Station Nord is a military and scientific station in northeastern Greenland km north of the Arctic Circle at 81°43'N, 17°47'W.
