#Arctic death spiral speeds up sixfold, driving coastal #permafrost collapse

The Arctic just saw its hottest May on record.
The #permafrost, or #tundra, is soil that stays below freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit) for at least two years. Thawing permafrost is a dangerous amplifying feedback loop for #GlobalWarming because the global permafrost contains #twice as much #carbon as the atmosphere does today .

#ClimateChange: #Greenland lost 2 billion (!) tons of ice this week, which is very unusual

Over 40% of Greenland experienced melting Thursday, with total #ice loss estimated to be more than 2 gigatons (equal to 2 billion tons) on just that day alone.
While Greenland is a big island filled with lots of ice, it is highly unusual for that much ice to be lost in the middle of June. The average "melt season" for Greenland runs from June to August.

I got checking working for the , based on Xavier Buff's method for the Mandelbrot set presented by Arnaud Cheritat: math.univ-toulouse.fr/~cherita

Replace `der` by the Jacobian $L$ w.r.t. $(x_1, y_1)$. Replace `squared_modulus(der)` with $|\det{L}|$. Arbitrarily use the pixel spacing for `eps`.

Should be straightforward to generalize the idea for other formulas.

The red zone of unknown is troubling - I wonder what is really going on in there.
