Disparities due to complete 2200, the Icelandic glaciers on the ground around 750 km2 of the surface since the beginning of 2000, soit 7% of the total surface area, with the effect of climate change, a public study.
In total, the surface of the Icelandic glaciers, which can be found to be less than 10% of the country, is in 2019 at 10,400 km2, as a publication of the special review Jökull (“Glacier” in Icelandic).
Since 1890, the glacier area has been covered by 2,200 km2, with 18%. More than a year ago, he was born in 2000, he was the last point of glaciologists, geologists and Icelandic geophysicists.
The return is based on two decades of representation near the total surface of the Hofsjökull (810 km2), three plus a large glacial coat of the North Atlantic.
“The variations of the glacial superficies in Iceland after the 1890s are a clear response to climatic variations,” said the authors.
“They are the same floats in the whole world, as well as the extensions (glacial movements of the glaciers) and the volcanic activity of the glacial influence on the position of certain glacial margins.”
In 2014, Iceland had the first disparity of one of its glaciers, the Ok, ex-Okjökull (“glacier of the Ok”) under the effect.
The scientific creignent that the 400 glacial massifs of Iceland disparate from 2200, rappelé the “homage” ceremony to the epoch.
Les recherches publiées lundi sont une contribution des scientifiques Icelandis au prochain rapport d’evaluation du Groupe d’experts intergouvernemental sur l’evolution du climat (GIEC) des Nations Unies, dont la publication est prévue pour 2022.
The glaciers of Alaska, the Alps and Iceland have a lot of parties that will return to the world in the last years, as a world study published in April in Nature.
The 220,000 glaciers on the planet hit 267 billion tons of ice per month between 2000 and 2019. An annual rate that accelerated by 30% in two decades and reduced the amount of 300 billion tons.
