Laptev Sea melt madness, Goodbye Waves have no time to be artistic
~ Most dramatic record pace melting on Russian side of Pole
~Visual record shows particular "Goodbye Waves"
NASA EOSDIS July 12 to 17, Laptev sea ice retreats at stunning speeds, mostly by melting, as exemplified by Goodbye Waves, not having a chance to twirl and be creatively beautiful. Never noticed this before on such a wide scale.
East Siberian sea during the same time period, thawing is just as frenetic, the G. Waves are likely from much thicker sea ice pans, so the twisting around or final act of sea ice can be seen. We can indirectly surmise what kind of ice it was by the last moments of its existence or life, a pan of sea ice includes a world of beings all dependent of it. WD July 17, 2020
