About this collection
(Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, 2014-09-29)There is a need for more studies in glacier hydrology that integrate numerical models with detailed empirical data collected over one/multiple summer(s). This is especially true for physically based models whose main ...
(Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, 2009-10-02)An automated method for tracking the calving margin positions of tidewater glaciers from MODIS imagery was developed, allowing for the recording of high temporal resolution change over 24 glaciers. Results compared well ...
Modelling meltwater drainage in the Paakitsoq region, western Greenland, and its response to 21st century climate change (Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, 2012-09-05)Recent studies suggest that the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is thinning rapidly and contains sufficient water equivalent to raise global sea levels by ~7m. The dynamic response of ice sheets to rising air temperatures has ...
