a Glacier getting bigger?

While we were in New Zealand a couple of weeks ago we visited the Franz Joseph Glacier

At the base of the glacier there is a small sign showing the retreat of the Glacier from its position in 1985 to now:

The interesting periods however are between 1950 and now, with the levels of retreat reversing in 1970 to now. You can see the glacier has grown significantly between 1970 and now.

I'll bet that little detail of it actually growing isn't so graphically displayed...
Abstract, abstract! ;)

I could check it from work, now it gets blocked by the adult material filters...
