2014 Greenland ice mass increases Sept. 1-Nov. 29, 2014 over same period in recent years-DMI

11/30/14, "Autumn Greenland Ice Sheet Mass Gain At A Record High," Steven Goddard 

Blue line shows ice growth from Sept. 1, 2014 to Nov. 29, 2014. Date "2014 29/11" is noted near top of DMI page above two Greenland maps. Scroll down for following graph: 




















"The Greenland Ice Sheet gained a record amount of ice and snow this autumn – more than 200 billion tons. This lowers sea level, and is the exact opposite of what experts forecast, and say is happening.

Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Mass Budget: DMI

This is a big change from 1940, when the glaciers of Greenland were rapidly melting and nearing a catastrophe.

=====================

Added: DMI, Danish Meteorological Institute text notes a net Greenland ice loss over the last decade. 10 years doesn't constitute a climate trend, but if Greenland had only existed for 10 years, in its 11th year, 2014, it would be getting some ice back:

"Current Surface Mass Budget of the Greenland Ice Sheet," DMI

"Satellite observations over the last decade show that the ice sheet is not in balance. The calving loss is greater than the gain from surface mass balance, and Greenland is losing mass at about 200 Gt/yr."

Via Steven Goddard commenters:

"d.w. says:
 

Satellite observations over the last decade show that the ice sheet is not in balance. The calving loss is greater than the gain from surface mass balance, and Greenland is losing mass at about 200 Gt/yr.”
Quoted from that article. This is also a model based on input data and that model has recently changed making comparisons to older model outputs less than ideal.

David A says:


dw, gravometric studies The error bars are very very large."

Comment: Since imagined global warming has been on "hiatus" for at least 15 years and scientists say "the slowdown" may continue until at least 2033, Greenland isn't about to melt:

"Cooling periods associated with the latter deeper heat-sequestration mechanism historically lasted 20 to 35 years." Meaning ongoing pause could continue until 2033 (1998 + 35= 2033).
 
8/21/14, "Global warming slowdown 'could last another decade'," BBC, Matt McGrath

"The hiatus in the rise in global temperatures could last for another 10 years, according to new research."...

It would take 3000 years for Greenland to melt if a steady warm breeze blew over it constantly-2011 Nature study:

1/26/2011, "Greenland ice sheet is safer than scientists previously thought," UK Guardian, Damian Carrington
.
"New study overturns fears that increased melting could lubricate the ice sheet, causing it to sink ever faster into the sea."
.
""The Greenland ice sheet is safer than we thought," said Professor Andrew Shepherd of the University of Leeds, who led the research published tomorrow in Nature....
.
"The Greenland ice sheet studied by Shepherd's team is up to 1,000m (3,280ft) thick. If the entire ice sheet melted, sea levels would rise by a catastrophic seven metres, but this is likely to take 3,000 years if warm air blowing over the ice is the only way in which the ice melts."...

Comment #2: You may wish to dust off your resume if you're making a living in the fabulously funded CO2 scare industry.
