Walking on Greenland’s ice sheet

ICE-SHEET-1

The Greenland ice sheet is a vast body of ice covering 1,710,000 square kilometres roughly 80% of the surface of Greenland. It is the second largest ice body in the world, after the Antarctic Ice Sheet. The mean altitude of the ice is 2,135 metres (7,005 ft).[1] The thickness is generally more than 2 km (1.2 mi). Some scientists predict that climate change may be near a “tipping point” where the entire ice sheet will melt in about 2,000 years.[2] If the entire 2,850,000 cubic kilometres (684,000 cu mi) of ice were to melt, it would lead to a global sea level rise of 7.2 m (24 ft).[3]

Off to the Arctic

 

double-greenland

I am only one week home and I am leaving tomorrow again for 2 weeks in the frozen arctic.  We will explore the ice world of  Greenland, sail through the icebergs, walk in the glaciers, maybe meet some wales along the way.

All these are fantastic and it is a dream come true but the hardest thing of all is to leave the best guy in the world behind. The relief is that he is in the hands of the best mom in the world and I know he is happy. See you both soon :)
