Mega-Canyon under Greenland Ice Sheet … It’s Longer Than the Grand Canyon

 

08/28/2013 08:00 PM EDT
Data from a NASA airborne science mission reveals evidence of a large and previously unknown canyon hidden under a mile of Greenland ice.

The canyon has the characteristics of a winding river channel and is at least 460 miles (750 kilometers) long, making it longer than the Grand Canyon. In some places, it is as deep as 2,600 feet (800 meters), on scale with segments of the Grand Canyon. This immense feature is thought to predate the ice sheet that has covered Greenland for the last few million years.

“One might assume that the landscape of the Earth has been fully explored and mapped,” said Jonathan Bamber, professor of physical geography at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, and lead author of the study. “Our research shows there’s still a lot left to discover.”

Melting Snow Patches Uncover Ancient Artifacts

Textiles and clothing history are of particular interest to me.  A significant portion of my (actual physical

printed) books are related to this subject.  Napping is of interest, as well, though I have never tried to duplicate

those skills.  However, there are nappers in my immediate family.  My own interest is more in keeping with

following cultural migrations.

Ancient artefacts found in melting snow

By Melissa Hogenboom Science reporter, BBC News

Tunic The well-worn tunic was incredibly well preserved and was made from wool

An Iron Age tunic is among the discoveries found under melting snow on Norwegian mountains.

Other findings include Neolithic arrows and bow fragments, thought to be about 6000 years old.

Snow on the Norwegian mountains, and elsewhere, is rapidly melting due to climate change, which is now unveiling a world of well preserved new discoveries.
