Greenland is gaining ice and snow cover


Look at these graphs from the Danish Meteorological Institute. Ice growth is far above normal.

  1. The 1981 start of the mean is two years into the rise from Solar Minimum between SC20 and SC21; the mean covers the following high solar output cycles 21, 22, and 23.
    Greenland’s ice cover had significantly increased over the SC20 solar cycle period from the ice mass lows of the previous three highest solar cycles SC17, 18, and 19, of the recently ended Modern Solar Warm Period, from the end of Dalton to the start of this Modern Grand Solar Minimum in 2008.
    Statistics depend on the message you are suggesting to the reader and the starting point for your “SAMPLE”. Had the mean covered the plot from the start of SC20, this year’s track would have probably been in the middle of the track, as it is, it is still showing significant recovery progress.
    How long do you think it will take for the New Zealand Glaciers to recover to the same point at sea level that Cook first saw them?
