1950: Significance of the early 20th century Arctic warming in Greenland

In addition to the widespread glacier retreat, Jensen and Fristrup (1950) also note that the Greenland sea ice now (1950) comes later and disappears earlier than previously. In southern Greenland the quality of the fjord ice is so bad, that the important seal hunting tradition with nets hanging below the ice have been abandoned. The amount of sea ice around South Greenland is now smaller than ever seen before during the period with regular observations (back to 1820). The change in sea ice was, however, especially rapid around 1920.
