I am re-posting an interesting message from Mauri Pelto on the Zachariae Isstrom ice loss. The original message is below ....


ORIGINAL MESSAGE
Dear Glacier Colleagues:
Petermann has got lots of attention this summer but the losses in area of Zachariae Isstrom and the open water currently at its front are worth noting.  Below is a link to a post on the glacier with numerous Landsat images, this is meant only as a  visual update not a substitute for the detailed research that has been conducted and will continue on this important outlet glacier.
