Ice disasters usually occur as a result of climate change, which happened in Northeast Greenland and led to the separation of a large part of the ice from the Arctic ice shelf.

Climate Change and Causation of ice Fracture in Greenland


Glacier N79 splits at its forward edge in two, with a second shift directly to the north;  this tributary is what has now broken up.


The satellite image and the opinions of some scientists:

The satellites showed that the ejected part extending from "the earth to the ocean so that it floats" has been torn into many small pieces, with an area of ​​110 square kilometers.

All this is caused by the constantly rising temperature, and this was confirmed by Alexander, a polar researcher at the University of Friedrichshafen in Germany, and Dr. Jenny Turton also confirmed this, saying that temperatures have risen by about 3 degrees Celsius over the past forty years in this region.


Ice breakage stages:

The plate glacier became a large fleet of icebergs, and gigantic numbers were formed as molten pools at the top of the ice shelf; These ponds were formed as a result of high air temperatures, which were clearly visible in the satellite images.  This is somewhat dangerous, as the water produced by these pools is in the cracks of the ice, which will lead to its expansion and continuing to crack, in addition to research proving that seawater is characterized by warmth, which confirms the melting of ice from the bottom as well.

With regard to the ice fracture that occurred in Greenland, it occurred in stages, it began to fracture in 2019, and it was permanently broken due to the heat of this summer.

Climate Change and Causation of ice Fracture in Greenland


The importance of N79 lies in its connection with the inner ice sheets, which confirms the transformation of this region into major and major centers for the disposal of ice in Greenland, in the event that the temperature of the climates in this region continues at this rate.

 What will help the transformation of this region is its classification as the largest ice shelf in the Arctic after the Peterman Glacier River lost a large area of ​​it in north-western Greenland?


All this has happened as a result of climate change and caused the breakage of the ice, and there is a high probability of these disasters continuing resulting from high temperatures.
