Expanding Arctic Ice…Greenland’s Bare Ice Area Rises 36% Since 2019

Just a short post today, following up on yesterday’s polar ice update, where the data show nothing unusual happening at the earth’s poles.

The globe’s surface has warmed over the past 140 years by almost 1°C, but that too is well within the natural range of variability over the Holocene.

Schneefan (Snowfan) here posted a chart on the Greenland ice cover, noting that “bare ice area of Greenland has been rising since measurements began in the year 2000”:

The linear trend shows that bare ice area over Greenland has risen from 110,000 square kilometers in 2000 to close to 150,000 square kilometers in 2019. That’s a rise of 36%!
