  • In fact, in certain areas of Greenland, narwhals can only be hunted from a traditional kayak with hand-thrown lances and spears. (rssc.com)
  • snow
  • As you drive around town, pausing every so often for photos, you will see landmarks that include the Parliament, the University of Greenland and Katuaq, a cultural venue whose modern design was inspired by the magical play of light on the ice and snow. (rssc.com)
  • Arctic
  • These breeds are associated with high latitudes - the Siberian Husky and Greenland Dog that are also associated with Arctic human populations, and to a lesser extent the Shar Pei and Finnish Spitz . (wikipedia.org)
  • In so doing it also provides an opportunity to give the real story - that change in Greenland and the rest of the Arctic is fast and accelerating. (realclimate.org)
  • Greenland is courting Chinese investors and construction firms to help expand three airports, causing concerns in the Danish government that Chinese involvement on the Arctic island could upset the United States, a close ally. (japantimes.co.jp)
  • Indeed, the dampened late 20th century winter warming over a substantial part of Greenland, particularly the western and southern regions emphasized by the network of stations analyzed by Vinther et al, is known (see e.g. this NOAA page ) to be associated with a trend toward the positive phase of the Arctic Oscillation ('AO') pattern. (realclimate.org)
  • The group said that is double the speed as when its Arctic Sunrise vessel last took a trip to Greenland in 2005. (redorbit.com)
  • The Greenland shark is native to the frigid Arctic waters, and thousands of them get caught and die in fishermen's nets off Greenland every year and are thrown back into the sea. (redorbit.com)
  • So rather than have them caught and die accidentally in nets, researchers at the Arctic Technology Center (ARTEK) in Sisimiut in western Greenland are experimenting with ways that they can utilize the oily flesh to produce bio-gas out of fishing industry waste. (redorbit.com)
  • We know very little about the Greenland shark, which lives in a limited geographic zone, the Arctic, she said. (redorbit.com)
  • As the Arctic region warms, Greenland glaciers such as Jakobshavn Isbræ have been thinning and calving icebergs further and further inland. (innovations-report.com)
  • sheets
  • In short, "global warming" and "climate change" are part of a worldwide psychological operation (PSYOP) designed to frame an argument over whether or not the Earth is warming rather than over whether or not the Greenland ice sheets and the polar ice caps even exist. (google.com)
  • Most people are basically in agreement that the complete disappearance of these ultra thick Ice Sheets in Greenland would result in an estimated 23-foot rise in global sea levels. (redorbit.com)
  • However, after studying sedimentary runoff off the coast of Greenland, Carlson now thinks that Greenland is the more stable of the two massive ice sheets. (planetsave.com)
  • The researchers produced the data presented in the study under the NASA-sponsored Greenland Ice Mapping Project, and carried out the analysis of the data at the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, sponsored by the US National Science Foundation. (innovations-report.com)
  • atop
  • Secondly, since Greenland and the North Pole sit atop the Earth, they should receive more sunlight than anywhere else on Earth, destroying any notion of polar ice caps. (google.com)
  • Lastly, considering that Greenland was named Greenland because it was once green, the argument that its location atop the Earth is somehow responsible for its ice age-like climate is ultimately null and void. (google.com)
  • notion
  • The notion that Greenland , which is reportedly 2,166,086 sq km (836,109 sq mi), is mostly covered by ice and snow is not only illogical but scientifically impossible. (google.com)
  • concern
  • While the accelerating mass loss from Greenland is of course a concern, the large exaggeration of that loss rate by Harper Collins in the press release for the 2011 edition of the Times Atlas was of course completely wrong. (realclimate.org)
  • In Greenland, the scourge of child sexual abuse has emerged as a pressing concern with nearly 1 in 3 having suffered abuse in their childhood, and efforts to combat it hampered by a persistent conspiracy of silence. (japantimes.co.jp)
  • scientists
  • The new paper in Nature , Eemian interglacial reconstructed from a Greenland folded ice core ( NEEM Community Members, (2013) ) is the culmination of many years of work in Greenland led by Dorethe Dahl-Jensen and her team from the Centre for Ice and Climate at the Niels Bohr institute in Copenhagen, with substantial involvement of scientists from around Europe, the U.S., China, Japan, and Canada. (realclimate.org)
  • This fact, together with the darkening of its surface, mean the changes in Greenland will affect the entire planet and its species, most scientists have come to agree. (yahoo.com)
  • Scientists are using the footage to document and better understand just how quickly Greenland is melting. (refinery29.com)
  • surface
  • construct a proxy record for Greenland surface air temperature over the past 4000 years, using argon and nitrogen isotopic ratios from air bubbles occluded in the ice, in order to establish useful estimates of the natural variability of temperature there. (sciencemag.org)
  • In fact, Greenland has far more ice cover (about 84% of its surface area) than ''Ice''land does, but the southern coasts the Vikings settled ''are'' green in summer, and were likely more so during the Medieval Warm Period. (wikitravel.org)
  • mass
  • This means that the Greenland ice has an overall mass gain by +11 ± 3 Gt/year (=10 ± 2.7 km 3 /year) which they estimated implied a -0.03 mm/year SLE over the period 1992-2002. (realclimate.org)
  • However
  • An admixture graph of the Greenland dog indicates a best-fit of 3.5% shared material, however an ancestry proportion ranging between 1.4% and 27.3% is consistent with the data. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, this accelerated movement is not necessarily tied to an increased rate of melting of the Greenland ice, although it can be related. (realclimate.org)
  • However, most parts of Greenland are covered with ice resulting in harsh living conditions which may suggest a reason why there are few inhabitants here. (worldatlas.com)
  • work
  • Entire trawlers are sometimes full of sharks and they are caught everywhere, especially off the east and west of Greenland, to the fishermen's great dismay," says Bo Lings who used to work on a big trawler. (redorbit.com)
  • Video
  • A breathtaking new video shows one stark reality of climate change: A huge portion of Greenland is literally melting away. (refinery29.com)
  • core
  • Getting usable Eemian ice from Greenland has been a Holy Grail of ice core research for the better part of two decades. (realclimate.org)
  • But the first analyses of a new climate record, in the shape of a 3029-metre long ice core drilled from the summit of the Greenland icecap could change everyone's ideas. (newscientist.com)
  • result
  • As a result of living in a pack structure, the Greenland dog takes a very firm and confident owner to make a good pet. (wikipedia.org)
  • amount
  • Whereas the finding of Rignot and Kanagaratnam suggests a larger sink of the frozen Greenland fresh water budget (the ice is dumped into the sea), the snow deposition in Greenland interiors is a source term (increases the amount of frozen fresh water). (realclimate.org)
  • The map above shows the difference between the amount of sunlight Greenland reflected in the summer of 2011 versus the average percent it reflected between 2000 to 2006. (nasa.gov)
  • half
  • In Uummannaq, the Greenland shark represents more than half of the waste disposed of by the local fishermen. (redorbit.com)
  • near
  • In respect to the argument that Greenland is near the North Pole (which does not exist) and thus experiences colder weather, there are a few scientific facts which have conveniently been left out of the equation. (google.com)
  • case
  • In case this isn't already clear, there is simply no measure - neither thickness nor areal extent - by which Greenland can be said to have lost 15 % of its ice. (realclimate.org)
