hubbard glacier growing

Ask Karen M about Hubbard Glacier. In contrast, it has now advanced 2.5 km since 1895 [Trabant et al., 2003a], a period when glaciers in the surrounding region have been losing mass, some of them at increasing rates [Arendt et al., 2002; Larsen et al., 2007]. Norwegian glaciers. Anyhow, for all the warnings about “proof of climate change” you look at where it was in 1850. See Alaska's Hubbard Glacier advancing 7 feet per day! The discharge records for the 1986 and 2002 outbursts differ significantly and reflect differences in lake height (26 m versus 15 m) and dam types (ice versus moraine). (Miriam O’Brien aka slandering “Sou” from Hotwhopper, that means you.). Generally, the glacier has steadily advanced but has seasonal oscillations of 100–200 m. A more complicated picture presents itself around Gilbert Point, where the 2002 outburst flood substantially eroded the ice face and caused a local retreat. The findings, recently accepted for publication in the Journal of Geophysical Research, explain how the mechanics at the terminus override the influence of other climate fluctuations. Seismic stratigraphic evidence for glacial expanse during glacial maxima in the Yakutat Bay Region, Gulf of Alaska. If we assume a conservative value of ∼3 m s−1 for the daily average tidal current through the gap, and use the average of the two values for melt rate from Figure 13, we find that melt rates in the channel could range from a low of 1.3 m d−1 in early spring (3°C) to as much as 4.5 m d−1 in late summer (10°C), compared to average ice velocity of about 5 m d−1 along this section of the terminus. March, and D.S. Also Taku Glacier the largest glacier in the Juneau Icefield doesn’t get any press, because it is advancing. See http://wattsupwiththat.com/2015/06/22/the-hubbard-glacier-defies-climate-change-continues-to-grow/#comment-1969657, Actually, it’s either – it depends where you’re from , http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/skeptic, Yes, Ken. And if you reject peer-review as a process, then you reject the gold standard of modern day science, because the modern findings –DNA, Evolution, Plate Tectonics, etc were developed and refined via research and publication with the screen of that process. Variations in Alaska tidewater glacier frontal ablation, 1985–2013. The moraine has been squeezed up against Gilbert Point, increasing in elevation to 14 m asl. It would be money well spent compared to the billions spent on “climate Change”. We also obtained the NOS 1999 survey data (http://www.oceanservice.noaa.gov/dataexplorer/) surrounding Gilbert Point and derived a bathymetric baseline to compare to post‐2002 outburst data. Although we do not discount seasonal changes in ice speed as contributing to seasonal oscillations of the terminus position, we believe that the threefold increase in seasonal submarine thermal erosion could also reasonably explain the seasonal changes in terminus through increased submarine melting and calving. Hubbard Glacier is the largest of eight calving glaciers in Alaska that are currently increasing in total mass and advancing. The proper spelling is sceptic. Growing again. Obviously, the lateral expansion of the channel was determined by ice calving rather than melting. [7] A sparse set of radio echo soundings (RES) in 1986–1988 showed the glacier to be about 360 m thick along the centerline with the bed at 180 m bsl at a distance of 1 km upstream from the terminus [Trabant et al., 1991]. Related to Geologic Time, Mineralogy (2) What conditions and events precipitated the eventual closure in 2002? Really awesome! [2] Hubbard Glacier, located near Yakutat, Alaska (Figure 1), is the largest nonpolar tidewater glacier in the world and has advanced over 2.5 km during the last century. At the current time plans to repair the system are tenative. The advance of Perito Moreno Glacier, a lacustrine calving glacier in Argentina, has periodically blocked a large tributary arm of the lake with dam failures there producing outburst floods that are reported to have released 3 to 4 km3 of water [Skvarca and Naruse, 2006; Stueffer et al., 2007]. The Hubbard Glacier is actually growing not receding as many other glaciers. [27] Over the next 8 days following the outburst the strong extensional conditions rapidly diminished as upstream ice increased in speed (Figure 7d). It’s also been very active in the past, having had two major surges in the past 30 years. The thing has been going backwards from the moment pakeha looked at it, and is no faster or slower now. Haenke Island – The climate station at Haenke Island is damaged beyond repair and is scheduled for replacement. The moraine at the front gives the glacier stability and allows it to advance more easily because the ice does not need to be as thick to stay grounded. Love the expression ‘defies climate change’. That’s exactly how the glacier has been moving towards the ocean. Post was not sent - check your email addresses! For surveys in Figures 8b, 8c, and 8d, depths are in meters with 5 m contour interval, and coordinates are UTM, NAD 83 zone 7. The flood waters rapidly eroded sediments and ice causing the channel to widen to 230 m and deepen to as much as 60 m bsl. Brent Ritchie contributed Figure 2. http://moonbattery.com/graphics/obama-francis-on-board.jpg, “While the majority of tidewater glaciers in Greenland, Antarctica and Alaska are retreating, some are advancing. (Speaking of which, I visited the glaciers in NZ, which are retreating alarmingly. ________________________________________ 1. Here. The image above, acquired by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8, shows Hubbard Glacier on July 22, 2014. This long‐term advance has a strong seasonal cycle with advance in winter to spring and retreat in summer to fall with oscillations as large as 100 to 200 m [Trabant et al., 1991; Ritchie et al., 2006]. Hubbard is one of the few glaciers that is actually growing. This advance has now brought the terminus close to Gilbert Point at the entrance to 60‐km‐long Russell Fjord (Figure 2).

In terms of a closure, the advanced position of the glacier around Gilbert Point indicates that if a closure is to occur in the future the mechanism will be significantly different than previous closures (1986, 2002).” Our post 2002 outburst bathymetry showed the existence of a shallow erosion‐resistant sill west of Gilbert Point (Figure 8). Stearns cautions, however, that these closure dates are “projections based on our current observations, and should be viewed with DENIAL.” 1. If this were retreating, I could google “Hubbard glacier,” and the first 50 or so article hits would be duplicate commentaries on the press release about global warming/climate change. However, by May 2002 the glacier once again began pushing up sediments above sea level and continued advancing toward Gilbert Point, blocking Russell Fjord by mid‐June. Hubbard Glacier Calving, on July 4th 2006. Dashed (solid) line shows glacier boundary from the first (second) photo date in each plot. Temporal and spatial changes in water depth reflect deposition or erosion of proglacial sediments, which in turn can lead to increased or decreased terminus stability. The current advance of Hubbard Glacier is driven by its very high ratio of accumulation to total area (AAR) of 0.95, and we consider the glacier to be in the advance phase of the so‐called tidewater glacier cycle [Post, 1975; Meier and Post, 1987; Post and Motyka, 1995; Trabant et al., 2003a]. We wish to thank R. Johnson and the AK Department of Fish and Game for their generous logistics support, R. Gubernick (USDA Forest Service) for sharing lidar data, the USDA Forest Service, Yakutat District, the U.S. National Park Service, Yakutat office, and the people of Yakutat for sharing their photos and observations, and the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service for providing us with digital copies of their summer 2002 vertical aerial coverage of Hubbard Glacier terminus.

You could monitor it in real time. The glaciers they include in their total mass balances are very limited. Future closures are of serious concern to residents of the nearby town of Yakutat because rising lake level could breach a 41‐m low point at the southern end of Russell Fjord (Figure 1). Hubbard Glacier could permanently dam the entrance to Russell Fiord in as little as 10 years. Roger Ice upstream of the dam came within 10 m of the rock wall and threatened to also close the gap there. Photo dates and times are known to within a minute and therefore uncertainties in Δt are negligible. Photo about Hubbard Glacier showing growth layers and mountains in the background. Only a small portion of this thickening would have been offset by summer ablation, which for coastal regions can average 0.05 m d−1 [Motyka et al., 2002; Boyce et al., 2007]. Why Hubbard Glacier, Alaska is Better. There needs to be a more comprehensive monitoring of “all” glaciers of the globe. Careful, don’t poke the troll too much or he’ll fly into an incoherent spittle-flecked rage, stamp his feet -oops, too late. The image above, acquired by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8, shows Hubbard Glacier on July 22, 2014.The image shows a close-up of the glacier’s terminus on that day. Cheers These rates are much lower than the typical 10–100 m h−1 reported by WO97. Yellow lines indicate the location of the terminus on August 1, 1978, and on July 13, 2002. ________________________________________ We therefore measured ocean water temperatures as a function of depth during each of our annual bathymetric surveys as well as on 23 April 2003 using submersible temperature loggers, accurate to ±0.2°C. And don’t even get me started on their average weight! The loss of buttressing against Gilbert Point caused upstream ice to quickly accelerate (to 5 m d−1). (Memento vom 24.September 2008 im Internet Archive) ↑ USGS Report: Hubbard Glacier, Alaska: Growing and Advancing in Spite of Global Climate Change and the 1986 and 2002 Russell Lake Outburst Floods. The 2002 outburst proceeded in two stages: (1) relatively slow overtopping of the subaerial moraine with downward erosion rates of 1–2 m h−1 with little lateral expansion, (2) followed by faster downward erosion of the submarine moraine (up to 7 m h−1) with rapid lateral expansion of the channel by ice calving (∼7 m h−1). My goodness. Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface. [4] In this paper we describe Hubbard Glacier; discuss the formation of the 2002 dam and the subsequent outburst flood; analyze the changes in ice flow patterns caused by this event; show changes in bathymetry in and around the point of dam formation; present a discharge model for the outburst flood; and finally discuss how channel depth and warm ocean temperatures may be preventing the glacier from readvancing and closing Russell Fjord since 2002. Lake height reached 15 m asl before intense rains caused lake water to overtop the moraine dam on 14 August 2002. Only a small remnant of the moraine remained above water in the aftermath. The captain ofour ship, the Celebrity Millenium was great (a wonderful sense of humour). The problem with your assertion dear Warren is that the scientists here advise the reader to view their projections with “skepticism”, which is the correction way to view projections. The Hubbard Glacier is actually growing not receding as many other glaciers. By 2002 the sediments had presumably become so shallow that the spring advance was able to push these sediments upward above sea level, thereby cutting off calving, and also forward onto and partially overriding the sill during the closure (Figure 8). The 1986 outburst stripped the sediments from Gilbert Point to depths exceeding 35 m [Trabant et al., 1991] and redeposited them in Disenchantment Bay [Cowen et al., 1996], appreciably deepening the tidal channel and widening it to 300 m. Channel width was still about 300 to 400 m in 1999 and water depths averaged about 25 m. [9] Despite predictions of imminent glacier readvance and damming [Trabant et al., 1991], the next closure did not occur until 2002. Sediments are slowly filling in the channel at a rate of about 4 m yr−1, and their steady accumulation may eventually trigger the next closure. After 1986, the channel gradually filled in with sediments derived from glacier erosion and remobilization of sediments by glacier advance. The 2008/09 surge of central Yulinchuan glacier, northern Tibetan Plateau, as monitored by remote sensing. Hubbard is one of the few glaciers that is actually growing. Glaciologists who have studied Alaska's ice for years say the opposite is true. Flow changed direction toward Disenchantment Bay with the flow pattern returning to predam conditions within a few days of the outburst. These measurements are constantly changing as the Hubbard Glacier continues to … Because glaciologists don’t know the difference between ‘gliding downhill’ and ‘growing.’ Thank goodness ED is here to correct them. Hubbard Glacier, one of the few growing glaciers in Alaska, advances toward Gilbert Point north of Yakutat in summer 2009. The doom and disaster is long overdue! Helpful.

A smaller ship, we could get quite close and see and hear ice calving. November 06, 2020 . The article appears to be another ‘alarmist claim’ that ice is growing and will block all ports. (1896-1977), Chinese Journal of Geophysics (2000-2018), International The magnitudes of uncertainties due to each of the previous factors vary as a function of the position of the feature on the photo. [1991] reported near terminus ice thickness of about 140 m with the bed ∼85 m bsl. Given the current rates of sediment accumulation it may take another ten years for sediments to fill the gap to 1999 levels (Figure 9). Feeble brains or dishonesty–take your pick. [55] In 2002, a spring ice advance near Gilbert Point pushed shallow submarine proglacial sediments above water, isolating a 1‐km‐long section of the terminus from deep ocean water and strong tidal currents. The positive glacier-wide massbalance of Hubbard Glacier is directly measurable as changes in the overall surface alti-tude (thickness).Thesechangeswere measuredusinganair-borne laser altimeter system that has been described by Echelmeyer and others (1996).The resulting surface profiles havedatapointsevery1.5malong theflightpath,andaver- And don’t forget shooting the dogs. And we’re still awaiting Anthony’s paper on data treatment. I mean, come on, they are still using Farenheit! McKinley and Hubbard). Equation (16) predicts somewhat higher melt rates than equation (15). During the initial stages of 2002 dam formation, ice speeds and flow patterns were nearly identical to those reported for flow in this region for summer 2001 [Trabant et al., 2003a; R. M. Krimmel, unpublished data, 1990s]. The greater uncertainties in the last two periods reflect the short time interval between observations. Learn about our remote access options, Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks, Fairbanks, Alaska, USA. Once moraine material is pushed above water in front of a seasonally advancing terminus, it will effectively isolate the ice front from the ocean and thereby shut down the calving and submarine processes, allowing the glacier to advance unabated. Credits: NASA Earth Observatory images by Joshua Stevens and Jesse Allen, using Landsat data from the U.S. Geological Survey and Hubbard Glacier data provided by Marcy Davis of The University of Texas at Austin. She can expect a knock on her door at 3 A.M. from the Climate Stasi. The new system utilizes a low-power two-way Iridium communication system that reduces overall power consumption and allows for increased data acquisition intervals (hourly). 3 km3 of water flushed through the gap in a period of about 30 hours. “projections … should be viewed with skepticism.” My reaction too. One weeps for humanity. August 28, 2011 – Summer Activities Now about 66 km (41 mi) in length, it is the longest glacier in the southern hemisphere outside of Antarctica.

Glaciological and marine geological controls on terminus dynamics of Hubbard Glacier, southeast Alaska. CRAZY BIG AVALANCHE @ 2:03 !! The total age of the glacier is approximately 400 years. This shoal moraine succeeded in isolating the terminus from ocean water and channel currents, substantially reducing or eliminating submarine melting and calving losses, allowing the fjord to be closed. Stearns cautions, however, that these closure dates are “projections based on our current observations, and should be viewed with skepticism.”. The captain ofour ship, the Celebrity Millenium was great (a wonderful sense of humour). OMG! Both dams failed catastrophically. Introduction [2] Hubbard Glacier, located near Yakutat, Alaska (), is the largest nonpolar tidewater glacier in the world and has advanced over 2.5 km during the last century.This advance has now brought the terminus close to Gilbert Point at the entrance to 60‐km‐long Russell Fjord ().Hubbard Glacier has dammed Russell Fjord twice in historic times, once in 1986 and again in 2002. A tidewater glacier is one that flows into the ocean. This tidewater glacier may be a bit of sleeping giant. However, a future surge, if powerful enough, could drive the terminus across even a deep water channel. Raw water depth data were corrected for tidal stages based on tidal corrections made during a NOS survey of the area in 1999. http://rhymeafterrhyme.net/remember-the-nineties-whatever-happened-to-global-warming/, Don’t be silly! The captain ofour ship, the Celebrity Millenium was great (a wonderful sense of humour). At the current rate of sediment infilling, it may take another ten years before waters shallow to depths equivalent to the pre‐2002 event. Glaciological and marine geological controls on terminus dynamics of Hubbard Glacier, southeast Alaska. This Glacier is actually advancing (growing, the only one that still is by the way) so don't be too mad about the people being excited for the ice falling During the intervening years, glacier advance averaged only 6 m yr−1 toward Gilbert Point [Ritchie et al., 2006], much less than predicted and much less than elsewhere along the terminus. Well, alright then. Solving the coupled equations (2)-equations (2)–(4) and attempting to fit w(t) to observations also revealed that sediment erosion rates in the moraine were quite slow (compared to typical values listed in WO97) and that these rates are not constant. @evanmjones The captain ofour ship, the Celebrity Millenium was great (a wonderful sense of humour). The glacier advanced 40 m toward Gilbert Point during May and early June, pushing submarine moraine sediments forward with shoaling visible along a 0.5 km arc of the terminus (Figure 3a). See Glaciers growing in Spain (Pyrinees) Antarctica growing colder - Ice expanding 18 Apr 09 - "Ice is expanding in much of Antarctica," says this article. But there's one image released this week by NASA that shows one Alaskan glacier that might actually be growing. From NOAA Earth Observatory: Since measurements began in 1895, Alaska’s Hubbard Glacier has been thickening and steadily advancing into Disenchantment Bay. @evanmjones Antarctica has approximately 95% of all the freshwater ice in the entire globe…. Glaciers are slow-moving rivers of ice that usually grow in winter and shrink in summer. But at least they found their way into the headline for this article. Increased flux to the east caused ice advance with ice almost crossing the gap behind the moraine dam (Figures 4 and 7b). The mighty Hubbard – the continent’s biggest tidewater glacier covering 1,350 square miles and standing 350 feet tall – is growing larger by the day. This Glacier is actually advancing (growing, the only one that still is by the way) so don't be too mad about the people being excited for the ice falling The Hubbard Glacier is the most famous growing glacier. Researchers from CRREL, The National Snow and Ice Data Center (Boulder, Colorado) and the USGS Alaska Science Center (Anchorage) removed the previous laser scanning system and replaced it with an updated version of the system developed by CRREL. [16] Bathymetric surveys of the area were conducted by the National Ocean Survey (NOS) in 1977–1978 [NOAA, 1984] and 1999 [NOAA, 2000]. This is a list of glaciers existing in the United States, currently or in recent centuries.These glaciers are located in nine states, all in the Rocky Mountains or farther west. Sorry. [24] Figure 7a shows the average ice velocity field during the period when the glacier and moraine dam were first being formed. However, glacier instabilities such as surges of tributaries could trigger an anomalously rapid advance and close Russell Fjord at any time regardless of water depth. Measurements were corrected to mean sea level datum and the accuracy of the manometer is ±0.003 m [Seitz et al., 1986]. [29] A cross section of submarine topography in the channel based on the 1999 and 2002–2005 annual bathymetric surveys is shown in Figure 9. (c) Channel depths immediately following 2002 outburst flood. Water temperature can also play a role during an outburst flood from a glacier‐dammed lake because water above 0°C can melt ice and widen the outflow channel [Walder and Costa, 1996]. Ice calving had widened the channel to ∼230 m by the next day (Table 1 and see Figure 7d). But – but if its a tidewater then how can it be advancing at the same time as the current terrifying rise in global sea level. WHOAAA!!! Hubbard Glacier is an excellent example of how a tidewater glacier can behave asynchronously with neighboring glaciers and independently of climate. This acceleration resulted in strong extensional strain rates, which probably fractured and weakened the ice, thus contributing to the calving collapse and channel widening during and following the flood. Perhaps I shouldn’t rush through an article on the way out the door. A glacier arch in Argentina has collapsed - but it's not due to climate change. Witnessed on the Radiance of the Seas 8/7/2010. The Hubbard Glacier is actually growing not receding as many other glaciers. Commentary by Jeffrey Simpleton and Paleomagnetism, History of The Hubbard Glacier is the most famous growing glacier. Figure 2: Percentage of shrinking and growing glaciers in 2008–2009, ... Hubbard Glacier is the largest of eight calving glaciers in Alaska that are currently increasing in total mass and advancing. “… presumably from melted ice.” I believe proper form by the stasi is to use a battering ram for knocking and flash bag grenades to neutralize babies. I always wondered with all the talk about Global warming; we better took a look at it before it disappears. We believe that this sill acted as a sediment trap following 1986 and sediment accumulation behind the trap helped gradually fill the channel (see 1999 bathymetry, Figure 8b). [33] We solved the coupled equations (2)-equations (2)–(4) for B(t) and w(t) using the Matlab ODE solver. Awaiting the new discovery of the properties of ice being made more flowy by warming. Growing again. With the terminus impeded and no longer free to simply slide forward, sliding was substantially reduced. The Hubbard Glacier is actually growing not receding as many other glaciers. Holding up “peer-review” as evidence of global warming is now just a disguised appeal to authority argument. Hubbard Glacier, named for the first president of the National Geographic Society, Gardiner Hubbard, is massive. “Projections”, so loved by CAGW, could be abbreviated to PCP’s or “probably crap predictions”. “Recent Updates While Hubbard Glacier is not known to surge, many of its tributaries do. And don’t even get me started on their average weight! Growing. http://www.rogerfromnewzealand.wordpress.com. [46] Between 1986, and 2002 the rate of glacier advance averaged ∼ 30 m yr−1 everywhere along the terminus except at Gilbert Point. In addition, Hubbard is building up a large moraine, shoveling sediment, rock, and other debris from Earth’s surface onto the glacier’s leading edge. Here’s later reports, I looked at the list of WGMS glaciers (the last 3 reports) included in the total glacial mass balances. No trends in severe weather. These speeds were quite high, ranging from 12 to 4 m d−1 in a N – S gradient Given that ice thickness within 1 km of the terminus was likely 200 to 400 m [Trabant et al., 1991], most (≥ 90 %) of the measured surface ice velocity must be attributable to basal sliding. Isn’t that how climate-science-by-press-release works? Post processing against a base station in Yakutat ensured positional accuracy of ±1 m or better. Glaciers growing on Glacier Peak, WA Post outburst bathymetry documented that the glacier advance and the flood eroded the channel to depths of 60 m at Gilbert Point (Figures 8c and 9). Alaska’s Hubbard Glacier is advancing moving toward Gilbert Point near Yakutat at an average of seven feet per day. Well, it’s proof of warming, of course : in this polar area it doesn’t meld ice, but it makes ice more fluid and advance quicker (instead of sticking to mountain flanks), hence the grow. ↑National Park Service: Hubbard Glacier: Geology in Action! He said that’s all from climate change and then looked all spiritual in his eyes. If this had occurred, thickening ice could have significantly increased the height of the dam, and possibly made it less susceptible to the ensuing August rain event. And, naturally, they will find that a collapse is imminent, but they need to drill more holes so they can observe the collapse to better understand global warming. FULL SCREEN - HD -From the cruise ship ms Ryndam on May 28,2009. Thus any changes blocking basal sliding would be immediately reflected in the surface velocity. http://www.svalbardglaciers.org/surging_glaciers_other_glaciers.html. Both of these things are bad in the dyspeptic world of alarmism. Additional support was provided by the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska. Use the link below to share a full-text version of this article with your friends and colleagues. Stearns, L.A. et al. [22] Discharge was relatively slow at first but sufficient to begin eroding the moraine dam. Estimate of submarine melt rate in meters per day per degree Celsius above melting point as a function of water velocity based on equations from, By continuing to browse this site, you agree to its use of cookies as described in our, Journal of Advances One estimate suggests that the fjord could permanently close by 2025. Although there are 16 glaciers in Glacier Bay National Park, none of them compare to the size of Hubbard Glacier. Other data sources are high‐resolution (1:6000), low‐elevation vertical aerial photos that were acquired for the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) as part of their study of seal populations on icebergs in Disenchantment Bay. We would also like to thank following individuals for valuable field assistance: Jackie Lott (USNPS), By Valentine, Ned Rozell, and Michael Hekkers. http://www.wgms.ch/gmbb.html, Gary, I think WGMS just changed their web address. Here is the site, but the last several years I haven’t been able to see the daily updates on how close the glacier is to the point. It seems that the mini glaciers in Glacier National Park get a lot of press because they are retreating, but Hubbard doesn’t get any press, even though it’s the largest tidewater glacier in North America. Hubbard Glacier, glacierresearch.org. Since 2002 the annually averaged terminus position at Gilbert Point has remained nearly constant at about 350 m from Gilbert Point, despite the fact that the advance into Disenchantment Bay has continued at ∼ 30 m yr−1. @Boulder Skeptic However, to our knowledge, Hubbard Glacier is the first historic instance of an advancing tidewater glacier damming a major waterway. September 16, 2013 – HUbbard Glacier Update The article doesn’t mention the Hubbard is the largest tidewater glacier in North America. Terminus position in 1961 shown by black boundary. In French cantons in Switzerland they still have archaic usage (septante, huitante, nonante (IIRC) for soixante-dix, quatre-vingt, quatre vingt-dix [70, 80, 90] Come to think of it Shakespeare is 16thC and it is, to some English speakers, almost unintelligible. We saw the Hubbard Glacier while cruising on our Viking Orion cruise ship. [50] Figure 13 plots the results for the above equations and our assumed values and gives the estimated melting rates. It’s not stopped,it’s stunned. [1976], who reported temperatures in EDB ranging from a minimum of 2.75°C in March–April to a maximum of 7°C in late August–September in 1973. Tidal and seasonal variations in calving flux observed with passive seismology. [30] Late summer ocean temperatures in EDB were warm and similar for 2002–2005, and showed a positive gradient with depth, increasing from 6.5°C near the surface to as much as 10.4°C at depths of 50 m (Figure 10).

NMFS vertical air photo mosaic of Gilbert Point dam (a) on 7 June 2002 and (b) on 7 July 2002. The mighty Hubbard – the continent’s biggest tidewater glacier covering 1,350 square miles and standing 350 feet tall – is growing larger by the day. [23] Figure 7 shows the derived velocity fields for four time periods, spanning the time of dam building, dam collapse, and postoutburst recovery. I think they could. (2015) Glaciological and marine geological controls on terminus dynamics of Hubbard Glacier, southeast Alaska. The captain ofour ship, the Celebrity Millenium was great (a wonderful sense of humour). A PDF version of this report is available. Yes, the glacier is gliding downhill on a lubricating film of liquid water, presumably from melted ice. Spring temperatures in EDB on 25 April 2003 were considerably cooler, averaging 5.4°C and show little change with depth. Additional evidence for seasonal warming at these depths comes from Reeburgh et al. February 7, 2012 – Laser Ranging Update Terminus and moraine boundaries were derived from all photo sets. NASA image of the Day - The Advance of Hubbard Glacier If you condemn peer review in general, you reject the modern day findings of all science, not just AGW. Figure 1. Our examination of the 2002 event builds on these earlier studies and relies heavily on information gathered by a number of government agencies and private individuals as well as our own postoutburst investigations. David C. Finnegan/CRREL It's possible that the glacier could close the fjord by later this summer if the current rate speeds up, says Harris. Number of times cited according to CrossRef: Glacier Variations at Xinqingfeng and Malan Ice Caps in the Inner Tibetan Plateau Since 1970. [28] Bathymetric charts of the Gilbert Point area derived from the NOS 1977 and 1999 surveys and from our own surveys in 2002 and 2004 are shown in Figure 8. Thank Karen M . Observations and flood records from 2002 also allow us to develop and test a model of dam failure and outburst discharge [e.g., Walder and Costa, 1996; Walder and O'Connor, 1997]. [17] Because of limited resources, we restricted our own surveys to regions of Disenchantment Bay and Russell Fjord near Gilbert Point, the site of past and potentially future closures. The Hubbard Glacier is the largest tidewater glacier in North America. An often‐referenced empirical AAR (accumulation to total area ratio) value for a glacier in steady state is 0.65–0.70 [Paterson, 1994]. Twice in the past hundred years—in 1986 and again in 2002—the moraine has made contact with Gilbert Point and blocked the entrance to Russell Fjord. The moraine was 5 m (asl) high and formed a 50 m wide dam at Gilbert Point by 7 July 2002 (Figure 3b). Processes, Information Not in a decent journal. The gradient between terminus and up‐glacier velocities shows that the near‐terminus ice was being subjected to strong extensional forces during the outburst. That’s not what the guy on the cruise said. Comparison of lake level rise 1986 versus 2002 from the USGS water level gauge in Russell Fjord (modified from [, The 2002 outburst hydrograph (solid curves). “This is all to be expected as when glaciers melt, they speed up and so this is why its advancing and getting thicker…”. Had the glacier at Gilbert Point advanced as rapidly as elsewhere, the next closure would have occurred within less then a decade, as Trabant et al. All Antarctic glaciers outside the peninsula are north facing, so fit the general pattern.of retreat versus advance. @Philip Bradley Will Trump send the Paris Agreement to the US Senate? Lastly, understanding the dynamics in this region is important for assessing the factors facilitating another closure, the timing of the next closure, and the stability of any future dams. [25] By July, speeds decelerated by a factor of two or more throughout the study area: 5–6 m d−1 into EDB and 1.5 m d−1 toward Gilbert Point (Figure 7b). The region adjacent to Gilbert Point, where the closure would occur, advances more slowly because seawater passing through the gap constantly erodes the ice. [11] The water level record for “Russell Lake” was obtained from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) who operated a standard water level type tide gauge located in the “lake”. Or dig a canal to bypass Gilbert Point? The discontinuity of the calculated erosion rates is due to a discontinuity in dB/dt, because, as described above, B was assumed constant until ice calving started and to then increase linearly afterward. It amazes me that feeble brains on the CAGW side just can’t comprehend that if one side controls the peer-review process at a journal, then only the self-serving side of the argument will ever see the light of day in that journal. You see this in Greenland and the Himalayas. Alaska tidewater glacier terminus positions, 1948–2012. let’s anticipate the alarmists response to this “dead parrot resting”: I’ll throw in just one example of broken science peer review and how it manifests itself as well to support my comment further, for good measure… Since measurements began in 1895, Alaska’s Hubbard Glacier has been thickening and steadily advancing into Disenchantment Bay. Are their clothes more fashionable? I know French in Canada was 16th century French, although over the last two generations, modern French is being taught. Save the Great British Bakeoff. However, ice flow upstream of the dam was apparently still readjusting to changes in terminus boundary conditions with speeds and directions at or below uncertainty levels (<1–3 m d−1). [10] Our chronology of the 2002 closure and outburst of Russell “Lake” is largely based on photos and observations obtained by multiple governmental agencies and private individuals that were monitoring the situation (http://www.fs.fed.us/r10/tongass/hubbard; http://ak.water.usgs.gov/glaciology/hubbard/), as well as our own observations. By spring 2002, a subaerial push moraine developed as a result of shallow water, mobile sediments, and seasonal advance. Modelling outburst floods from moraine-dammed glacial lakes. Submarine glacial sediments emerging from the sea May 20, 2002. Most are getting smaller, fast. Dates of measurements adjoin curves. Our analysis was restricted to the regions close to Gilbert Point covering an area of about 3 km2 (Figure 2). This completely portable system was installed on a 20 foot skiff. Growing. The southernmost named glacier among them is the Lilliput Glacier in Tulare County, east of the Central Valley of California. Off the coast of Yakutat—200 miles NW of Juneau—Hubbard is certainly gigantic: it's more than six miles wide where it meets the ocean. Boxed area roughly defines region of ice flow analysis. Outbursts of the magnitude seen in the past from Russell Fjord also constitute a severe hazard to navigation in the bay. Happy Travelling! Hubbard Glacier, Alaska: Growing and Advancing in Spite of Global Climate Change and the 1986 and 2002 Russell Lake Outburst Floods U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological Survey USGS Fact Sheet 001—03 January 2003 Regions westward along the terminus into Disenchantment Bay lacked shoreline control necessary for photogrammetric analysis. This is consistent with results from WC96 who described outburst events lasting several days. Hubbard Glacier Calving, on July 4th 2006. Thank Karen M . [14] Uncertainties in our velocity calculations are due to uncertainties in the estimates of feature elevation (±15 m), resolution of position (±0.5 to 3 m), and uncertainties in adjustments for differences in photo scale and orientation between photo sets. While glaciers in southern Alaska were advancing during the Little Ice Age, Hubbard Glacier underwent a dramatic retreat [Barclay et al., 2001]. Oh-oh, she forgot to mention the magic words “climate change”, No funding for you! Von seiner Quelle im Yukon-Territorium erstreckt sich der Gletscher über 122 km in die Disenchantment Bay und Yakutat Bay.Er ist damit der … This tidewater glacier may be a bit of sleeping giant. Glacier - Glacier - Heat or energy balance: The mass balance and the temperature variations of a glacier are determined in part by the heat energy received from or lost to the external environment—an exchange that takes place almost entirely at the upper surface. U.S. Geological Survey, abgerufen am 21. Advance of Hubbard Glacier and 1986 outburst of Russell Fiord, Alaska, U.S.A. Taku Glacier on the move again: Active deformation of proglacial sediments, 20th century thinning of Mendenhall Glacier, Alaska, and its relationship to climate, lake calving, and glacier run‐off, Submarine melting at the terminus of a temperate tidewater glacier, LeConte Glacier, Alaska, Rapid erosion of soft sediments by tidewater glacier advance: Taku Glacier, Alaska, USA, Preliminary hydrography and historic terminal changes of Columbia Glacier, Alaska, Taku and LeConte Glaciers, Alaska: Calving speed control of late Holocene asynchronous advances and retreats, Oceanographic conditions during 1973 in Russell Fiord, Alaska. This has been done several times with surface temperature records and the dummies bought it. Kind of like spending money to reinforce the dikes in New Orleans. Plus even if its not warm enough to melt it, the acid oceans should make it fizz away and disappear. The Hubbard Glacier ice margin has continued to advance for about a century. Off the coast of Yakutat—200 miles NW of Juneau—Hubbard is certainly gigantic: it's more than six miles wide where it meets the ocean. See Glacier grows in cauldron of Mt. Late summer 2004 Russell Fiord water temperatures were comparatively uniform throughout the measured water column, averaging about 7°C. [6] The time and width‐averaged glacier advance between 1986 and 2002 was 28 m yr−1 into Disenchantment Bay and 34 m yr−1 into Russell Fjord. Harbor seals ride the floes, basking in the sun; orca whales prowl just around the ice barrier, waiting for an unwary seal to come out to where the whales' sonar can reach. At Gilbert Point (Figure 2) it significantly affected upstream ice flow and stability of the glacier dam itself. Brett. I cannot verify that this was an official growth rate. Bathymetric surveys of Gilbert Point channel. Not in any decent journal. [40] The rapidity of ice flow adjustment to changing conditions at Gilbert Point is striking. We addressed this by smoothing the record with a Gaussian of half‐width 40 min. Geophysics, Mathematical 2. Oh dear! Billy, Warren, et al, The water was crystal clear like glass with many small pieces of ice all around. Objects, Solid Surface [53] We believe the key to the next closure is halting the process of submarine melting and mechanical calving as discussed above. Jakobshavn Glacier in western Greenland is notorious for being the world’s fastest-moving glacier. “steadily advancing into Disenchantment Bay.” Gaia is using the only language at her disposal. Working off-campus? Water depth is thought to be a key factor in controlling tidewater glacier stability and calving rates appear to be at least partially a function of water depth [Post, 1975; Brown et al., 1982; Meier and Post, 1987; van der Veen, 1996; Motyka et al., 2003]. I’ve known many of them professionally, in part when my Fortune 500 employer consulted with Scientists on Climate Issues, and your claims are wildly off base. These concerns all seem so silly. Increasing atmospheric temperatures can not be the cause of this, and the cause is very likely to be global cloud reductions, and hence increased surface sunlight, which will have a much greater effect on south facing slopes than north facing, and at lower latitudes versus higher latitudes. That doesn't mean melting is over. (d) Channel depths 2 years after outburst. She is pouring herself into Disenchantment Bay. Hubbard Glacier, Alaska: See 661 reviews, articles, and 1,110 photos of Hubbard Glacier, ranked No.9 on Tripadvisor among 887 attractions in Alaska. The Beauty of Blue Ice, The Power of White Thunder. Date of experience: August 2019. Lovely plumage! *Is the Hubbard Glacier growing? The ellipses depict the estimated errors. West flowing, N American glaciers like Hubbard are generally in deep valleys and at high latitude, and hence will be relatively shaded, with increased sunlight having less effect than many other locations. The glacier is approximately 7 miles wide at its foot and 76 miles long. The lateral extent of the 7 July 2002 ice and moraine dam (short‐dashed lines) is also shown. Steller sea lions and mercury. There is something in nature on this planet that the “experts” don’t blame on the magic molecule CO2. [19] The first visible sign that closure was imminent was the emergence of proglacial sediment above water in front of the glacier terminus, visible on 2 May 2002. In the absence of calving (uc = 0) lateral erosion of the glacier dam is substantially slower than the average of 7 m h−1 observed during the event (Table 1), even when accounting for the relatively high water temperatures of 7°C, observed in Russell Fjord (section 4.5). The Battle for the Truth about Global Warming, “…invaluable” – Steven F. Hayward, The Weekly Standard, “…changed the world and is one of the most influential resources on global warming. The difference between MLLW and mean sea level is about 2.2 m, estimated from the tide record at nearby Yakutat. And isn’t Antarctica itself a giant glacier? “Understanding Hubbard’s behavior is scientifically interesting,” Stearns said, “but it also has immediate consequences for the town of Yakutat.”. Upstream ice flow rapidly decelerated from 5 m d−1 to 1.5 m d−1 and flow diverged to either side of Gilbert Point. Hubbard Glacier: Growing not Shrinking - See 661 traveler reviews, 1,110 candid photos, and great deals for Alaska, at Tripadvisor. The picture is current, the yellow lines are historical. Physics, Solar Hubbard Glacier Pros. Physics, Comets and /sarc Hubbard Glacier is up to 65 meters (213 feet) wide at its face and 50 meters (164 feet) tall, but that’s only the tiniest piece of the ice: The main channel of this frozen river begins 122 kilometers (76 miles) back, pouring down from the shoulder of Mt. CAGW we’re waiting for you, Do we call this ‘CAGC [cooling]?’ /sarc, Ah the resident troll finally chimes in from under the bridge… So you have the cojones to say that peer-reviewed science and all the worlds institutions of Science, which conclude AGW, are institutions of Religion, and YOU, an avowed rejecter of their findings, represent SCIENCE? The derived sediment erosion rates are quite robust with regards to the various parameters in equations (14a) and (14b). Global sea ice back to normal. Thus monitoring of both bathymetry and glacier dynamics is warranted. She is going home, to die. Figure 4 (10 August 2002) captures the full extent of the moraine and ice dam prior to the outburst. Gilbert Point Source: CDApress.com. Headline , dramatic glacier growth caused by global warming threatens ‘protected environment ‘. Inclement weather prohibited the team from replacing the system in August but the team will return in November to bring a new modern station online. Ask Karen M about Hubbard Glacier.
