I know my tweets have been very Greenland focused lately, but in another life I studied Arctic sea ice! This work was started over 5 years ago with collaborators at Univ of Delaware. https://t.co/BH3Z96ERBu

📻 🇬🇱 🌨️ 🧊 The @bbcworldservice's latest Science in Action contains an informative and thought-provoking contribution by @OhioState's @Michalea_King on the topic of the Greenland ice sheet. Presented by @PeaseRoland - and definitely worth a listen. https://t.co/uCH81Evl2m

My premier first-author paper is out in the world! So exciting! We show how a sub-ice shelf melt channel is changing asynchronously from the surrounding ice shelf. Fully edited version coming soon... https://t.co/CWRl2C35nD

My favorite figure from our new #Greenland paper out today partitions components of ice sheet imbalances since 1948 and nicely shows the recent shift to large mass losses.

The accelerating retreat and thinning of Greenland’s glaciers that began 20 year ago is speeding the ice sheet toward total meltdown, a new study warns. Even if warming were halted today, Greenland’s ice would continue to melt, researchers said. https://t.co/tYaQqY09dJ

So important to emphasize that people ARE in control of critical differences in HOW FAST we lose Greenland ice. This is not a 'throw up your hands' scenario, it is an 'all hands on deck' scenario. B/c Greenland ice loss with low emissions is MUCH BETTER than with high emissions. https://t.co/fzONvodad4

This was my first blog-type post, so it may lack a bit on style points. I enjoyed reading and learning from other recent examples such as contributions from @mathieu_ice and @jlbamber

I wrote a “Behind the Paper” blog post for Nature Sustainability Comm. on our recent Greenland paper. This short post is geared toward a general science audience, and I hope it will offer some clarity/context to some of the discussions I’ve seen online https://t.co/PNTiwCGQfY

When the floating glacier tongues thin and lift up, the glaciers speed up, carrying ever-more ice toward the sea - far more than what forms from compressed winter snows, said @Michalea_King, who closely studies Greenland's ice. https://t.co/rpIinFI6S4 https://t.co/jgOmhHO8Zo

Almost forgot to mention (& reminded by our @IARPCCollab discussions today): both individual glacier and Greenland-wide data from the paper freely available here: https://t.co/0oxWAWsJAs… — feel free to reach out with any questions on use!

Why does this matter? Now, ice is calved from the margins at a rate 14% higher than observed in the 1980's. Even before including recent trends in increasing surface melt, this jump in dynamic ice losses was enough to shift the ice sheet to an imbalanced state of mass loss.

We combine over three decades of front position and ice discharge records for all large outlet glaciers and show that ice discharge increases by 4-5% per every mean km of retreat. This pattern is surprisingly consistent across the ice sheet.

I am shocked and terribly saddened by the death of Konrad Steffen, once my professor, colleague and esteemed friend. A huge influence to me, Koni was the first person to speak to me about going to Greenland. https://t.co/8w6QpZSAeU

Our director Konrad Steffen was killed in an accident during field work in Greenland. We are shocked and in thoughts of his family. https://t.co/9xzKWYGQAa https://t.co/omAPzoq0qe

We have lost a truly wonderful human and great colleague. A harsh reminder that the fieldwork we do can be so dangerous. So terribly sad. https://t.co/hxHJgjhcB6
