The melt zone creep on the western edge of Greenland shows a distinct change in the inland reach. This is consistent with warmer temperatures. Note that the time period: June 2001, 2002, 2003. The melt zone is increasing during the period that some claim the earth is cooling.

The ice sheet melt extent is a daily (or every-other-day, prior to August, 1987) estimate of the spatial extent of wet snow on the Greenland ice sheet derived from passive microwave satellite brightness temperature characteristics. This indicator of melt on each area of the ice sheet for each day of observation is physically based on the changes in microwave emission characteristics observable in data. Although it is not a direct measure of the snow wetness, it is representative of the amount of ice loss due to seasonal melting that occurs on the Greenland ice sheet.
