Short description

Dynamic changes of tidewater outlet glaciers: Bowdoin glacier, Northwest Greenland

The goal of this project is to quantify ice mass loss in northwestern Greenland and evaluate its impact on the arctic and global environments (e.g. sea level rise) in the context of the Arctic Climate Chang Research Project within the framework of the GRENE (Green Network of Excellence; Program.

ETHZ install 3 surface velocity sensors near calving front.
