An Archive of Air and Ice

These layers hold centuries of air bubbles suspended in ice, pressed between layers of compressed rubble and coal dust. This moving archive speaks of changes in weather and climate, to those who are able to decipher it. This is Larsbreen, one of the glaciers above the town of Longyearbyen, and it is dying. I could say it is shrinking, but that’s not what the glaciologist, Léo Décaux said. He told me that Larsbreen is dying, silently. There isn’t enough snow to compact into ice, and summer temperatures have increased so much that melting ice isn’t replaced or refrozen. The glacier is melting from above and below. This glacier doesn’t reach the shore anymore so its edge won’t break off dramatically and crash into the water, causing a stir, a cry of pain or protest.  The ocean level will rise. The loss of this glacier will be felt. When I asked how he was able not to lose hope, Léo replied, ‘if I’m not hopeful who will be?’
