Compare with Ice Tongue
The definition of ice shelf seems so broad that it would include ice tongues as well. I'm no glaciologist so I'd prefer that someone else make the fix if possible.Jimtitus (talk) 20:55, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Not to freak out or anything here, but the section "Ice Shelf Disruption" contains the following sentence: "The breakup events are linked to the dramatic polar warming trends that are part of global warming..." Would it kill anyone to change this to a more neutral tone, given that despite what most people say global warming is not a proven science? Thanks... Undomiel 22:31, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
Ayles Ice Shelf Article Needed
Ayles Ice Shelf broke up in 2005, here is the article http://www.canada.com/nationalpost/story.html?id=5e511719-09ec-4c3a-9dd1-69aa37c3014e&k=39191 —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:35, 28 December 2006 (UTC).
I added an External Link to the main article pointing to the CNN story about Alyles... CNN stories tend to stay accessible on the web a lot longer than canada.com stories. Dzubint 18:22, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
Shelf ice redirects here. I am goning to make it into a separate article. If this is a problem then merge the two. This seems to discuss arctic and antarctic floating ice. I know of the word "shelf ice" as refering to the ice that forms at the upper part of a lake that freezes and is then washed upon the shore. This is common with the Great Lakes --Kalmia 07:55, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
Ice Shelf Disruptions
I changed "global warming" to "climate change". The former implies that AGW is solely responsible. The latter article takes into account that Earth goes through natural climactic changes. Ice Shelfs are always on the move (contracting, retracting,) an excellent example of this phenomena is given by Professor Syun-Ichi Akasofu in a documentary called The Great Global Warming Swindle. --Dean1970 04:55, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Climate change article takes into account AGW too, and explains in more detail Earth's climactic history . Global warming article centres around (mainly on human activity/impact). If we're just going to use Wikipedia as a tool to blame climate change on us pesky humans I'd rather we just have done with it and direct the link on this article to the movie The Day After Tomorrow. --Dean1970 00:58, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
- If you're citing TGGWS as RS, you've lost. The recent change gets blamed on recent GW, not on CC from earlier eras. Just because you can't get your POV into the GW article please don't start a proxy battle here William M. Connolley 08:57, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
The glacier Bråsvellbreen in the southern part of Nordaustlandet in the Svalbard archipelago (north of Norway) flows out over the sea, in what appears to be an ice shelf. Should this also be included in this article (it is not), or is there a reason why this does not qualify as an ice shelf? Awernham (talk) 13:32, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
"Ice shelves are only found in Antarctica, Greenland, Canada and the Russian Arctic."
