Warmer winter?

It seems like a warmer winter this year, but probably not. The temperatures of the radar sensors are significantly higher than last year. However, my position has changed. I am now installed close to the grounding line, an area where surface melt is predominant, and I feel it as well!

The GPS station are still at the same position of last year. However they moved with the motion of the ice shelf. Almost 500 m in less than 600 days.

GPS CGEO: my current position is 70.3999S, 25.0289E. I moved 471.6803m in direction N248.4208E in 571.9167 days.

GPS CDS: my current position is 70.4062S, 24.9927E. I moved 445.1747m in direction N248.9637E in 572.2083 days.
