The Greenland ice sheet has seen a shift to now have approximately 70% of the snow and ice shed due to surface melting rather than glacier calving. This leads to an accelerated melt rate, meaning that the contribution to sea level rise has doubled since 2011. Annually, 269 billion tons of snow and ice are shed by the ice sheet every year, contributing to a 0.74 mm annual sea level rise.

This place used to be my home for 2 years, the white house to the left between the blue and yellow was where we lived. I love this place it thought me to appreciate life and embrace the empty cold wilderness surrounding you. It partly shaped me to the person I am today and I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world. #Uummannaq ❤️#greenland#sledgedog#cold#emptyness#cya#heartshaped
“When you feel the need to speed up, slow down.” Some of the best life advice I’ve ever heard came from a TED Talk on freediving by Kimi Werner (@kimi_swimmy). While it might seem counterintuitive, I’m trying to use this as my mantra for all other aspects of my life. Personally, I get so overwhelmed with the stress of grad school and all my personal and professional goals that I go into a frenzy, trying to accomplish so many tasks and action items that I lose my center and eventually fall apart. Today is a day to refocus, recover and remind myself to slow down.
P.S. if you haven’t seen the talk already, I highly recommend giving it a watch. It’s definitely worth it. 🌊🌊
P.P.S. This photo is from awhile ago, and while I wish I was rushing toward another field expedition right now, I’m slowing down and trusting that I’ll be back in my wild happy place soon enough 😉
