The Ice in Greenland is Growing Old Radar Sites In Greenland Show Icecap Growth Over the Years
(And let’s not forget what we’ve learned about the temperature reporting from the DEW line Radar Stations
By Joseph D’Aleo, CCM, AMS Fellow

Though the ice may be melting around the edges of the Greenland Icecap in recent years during the warm mode of the AMO much as it did during the last warm phase in the 1930s to 1950s, snow and ice levels continue to rise in most of the interior. Johannessen in 2005 estimated an annual net increase of ice by 2 inches a year.

A Canadian Icecap emailer noted during the cold war there were two massive radar sites built on the Greenland icecap now abandoned.
They are called Dye-2 and Dye-3.

The first image below is from 1972.

Here it is in 2006.
