Investigating the eroding Arctic coastline - From Netweather to Tuktoyaktuk


Recommended Posts

Very interesting, nice work!

One question however, from near the end of the article re: North shoreline change from 1935 to 2018 on Peninsula Point - there is some variability between the time-samples but overall appears to show a fairly consistent rate of erosion which is at odds with a hypothesis of warming and reduced sea-ice?

Ah: ok re-read your theory now.

There was some variability between the different time periods, like a slowish retreat from 1950 to 1971, which meant that the overall slowdown wasn't quite statistically significant. However, especially when compared with other similar regions where retreat is accelerating, it was still enough implicate changes in ground ice.
