Short summary
Glaciers on Novaya Zemlya (NVZ) retreated rapidly between 2000 and 2013. This was far faster than the previous 25 years, but retreat then slowed from 2013 onward. This may result from changes in broadscale climatic patterns. Glaciers ending in lakes retreated at a similar rate to those ending in the ocean, and retreat rates were very consistent between glaciers, which contrasts with previous studies.
