Is the Ice Sheet Melting or Growing?

Suddenly and after years of melting, the ice sheet stopped melting in the Arctic Circle and is back to growing. The models’ predictions of ever-increasing global temperatures appear to be flawed, you may think, but it is not if you remember that the average sea temperature is on the rise still! So, what on Earth are these conflicting signs you may wonder. Another bewildering phenomena is the conflicting behaviour of the ice sheet in Antarctica. While the ice sheet has been constantly melting on the west side of the continent, it has been growing on the east side.

If the story is true and the Ice if rebuilding in the Arctic region, then there could be one explanation to the phenomenon. In the Earth Temperature page of this site, I explained a totally different model for the thermal energy that brings heat to the surface of Earth. I explained how sensitive it is to the collapse of the magnetic field and the ever changing location of the magnetic pole. The north magnet pole lies in East Antarctica at almost same intensity over the past century. By combining data from the US National Geophysical Center and World Data Center for Geomagnetism, Kyoto, it found to have gone from 69,175 nT magnetic intensity at the magnetic pole location on 71o S and 148o E in the year 1900 to 66,749 nT magnetic intensity at the magnetic pole location on 64o S and 137o E in the year 2014. The temperature at the Thermosphere layer of the atmosphere (100 km to 800 km above sea level) is at its lowest and that makes the surface region around the magnetic pole to be the coldest on Earth. As the magnetic field continued to collapse in other parts of the planet (currently at 86% of its normal strength over a city such as New York), the temperature at the Thermosphere layer is above its average due to accelerated protons speed and increased thermal radiation that results from the collision of sped protons with one another, thus increasing the global surface average temperature. Such an increase includes the regions of west Antarctica and Arctic Circle for instance.


I presented a different configuration of Earth Magnet, and explained that the main magnetic field that we observe on the surface of Earth and that keeps wandering is a permanent dipole magnet, which is the Inner Core itself. I also manifested that there is a secondary source of a magnetic field that appear as rings of south magnet patches around the axis of rotation both in the Arctic Circle and in Antarctica. Scientists have called such patches of south magnetic field ‘Plasmoids’ but they stopped short from explaining the reasons behind the phenomenon. I came with a theory that while the Inner Core is the source of the main and permanent magnet that shields the planet, the flow of free electrons in helical paths in the Outer Core produce identical south magnet patches at both Arctic and Antarctic regions. The faster the planet spins, the shorter the helical paths pitch becomes and the stronger an induced magnetic field force develops, resulting in patches of south magnets in the polar regions. This brings the Thermosphere temperature to a lower degree and makes the adjacent surface region to enjoy a cooler climate for ice to grow again. In summary, the ice is growing at this point in time in the Arctic Circle according to the University of Illinois’s Cryosphere project and I claim that such an growth in ice is attributed to a slight increase in the summation of the decreasing magnetic field force lines of the permanent magnet plus the increasing induced magnetic field force lines. If it continues, we should also expect a slight increase in Earth spin speed to confirm the theory. Both permanent and induced magnetic fields in the Arctic circle have south magnet polarity which made the magnetic field at the magnetic pole to drop by only 6% from 61,120 nT at magnetic pole location on 70oN 96oW in the year 1900 to 57,177 nT at the magnetic pole location on  85oN 149oW in the year 2014.

In my view the phenomena of the ice sheet growth will not continue for long. When the south magnetic pole crosses the geo pole towards Siberia, the Earth Spin Speed will start to slow down leading the electrons flow in the Outer Core to assume helical paths of longer pitches, thus producing weaker induced magnetic field force. The ice sheet will start to melt again in a year or two and will completely melt down in the Arctic Circle by 2017 if the south magnetic pole up in the North crosses over Siberia towards Central Asia.
