Greenland's glaciers and ice sheet have become an integral part of this blog. Perhaps it should be renamed to ASIGIS blog? ;-)
I'm guessing the calving took place in June of this year, basing myself on this CAD image that commenter Werther had made at the time (and I used in the Dark side of Greenland blog post). It shows the glacier's retreat since 2011, with the 2012 June event in red:
Back then I wrote:
Those are pretty big calvings, but strangely enough, I haven't seen any reports anywhere (of course, the Cruise-Holmes divorce must take precedence).
Better late than ever, eh? Especially when it's accompanied by awesome footage.
[edit: commenter Perwilainen has very convincingly explained that the footage is from 2009. Keep those cameras rolling if you want to film an even bigger calving event]
Speaking of Werther.. He made another CAD image, a very detailed one using the LANCE-MODIS satellite images of the Arctic, showing the boundary of the ice sheet (click for a very large version):
