Cardi B posts heart-melting photos of baby girl Kulture to Instagram as she celebrates 11 month mark

Cardi B posts heart-melting photos of baby girl Kulture to Instagram as she celebrates 11 month mark Cardi gave birth to Kulture last summer with rapper husband Offset, who she married in 2017. For their daughter's seven month mark in February, the Migos member posted a video of his wife in labor. He took to Instagram with a very intimate video of Cardi giving birth to Kulture, which turned out to be a teaser for his debut solo album Father of 4. The video has since been taken down from Instagram. Last month, Cardi revealed to fans at the Beale Street Music Festival that she had liposuction and breast augmentation following the birth. The rapper cancelled some of her shows to allow her body time to heal from the surgeries.

Steffen Olsen, from the Centre for Ocean and Ice at the Danish Meteorological Institute captured the image, which shows sled dogs walking through ankle-deep water that lies on top of a melting ice-sheet.

Rasmus Tonboe, Olsen's colleague, tweeted the "symbolic" image on Thursday.

"Steffen Malskaer got the difficult task of retrieving our oceanographic moorings and weather station on sea ice in North West Greenland this year. Rapid melt and sea ice with low permeability and a few cracks leaves the meltwater on top," Tonboe captioned the image.

Rapidly melting sea ice in Greenland has presented an unusual hazard for research teams He said the photos documented an “unusual day” and that the image was “more symbolic than scientific to many”. “The melting is big and early,” Jason Box, an ice climatologist at the Geological Survey of

Olsen tweeted the image had captured an "unusual" day and was more "symbolic than scientific to many".

"We have been measuring ice thickness since December, an activity that has been ongoing for a decade," he wrote.

The "powerful image" has gone viral, with Olsen commenting he is "overwhelmed" with the interest.

"People in the north will appreciate it, I am slightly overwhelmed with the interest," the climatologist wrote on Twitter.

Ruth Mottram, a climate scientist at the Danish Meteorological Institute, told The Guardian the team has been experiencing warmer weather in Greenland since last week, something that does not typically occur until later in June or early July.

"Last week saw the onset of very warm conditions in Greenland and in fact, much of the rest of the Arctic, driven by warmer air moving up from the south," Mottram said.

A new study warns that Greenland ’s ice is melting faster than scientists previously thought. In Greenland , researchers discovered that global warming, coupled with a negative phase of the North Atlantic Oscillation led to the rapid surface melt of the ice sheet during summers.

She said these conditions led to a lot of melting of glaciers, ice sheets and sea ice.

The climate scientist told The Guardian it was too soon to say what role global warming had played.

“It is still a weather-driven extreme event, so it’s hard to pin it down to climate change alone,” she said.

The Guardian reports sea ice melt creates significant problems for communities in Greenland, who rely on it for transport, hunting and fishing.
