    Strong contrast in mass and energy balance between a coastal mountain glacier and the Greenland ice sheet

    Abermann, Jakob ; As, Dirk Van ; Wacker, Stefan ; Langley, Kirsty ; Machguth, Horst ; Fausto, Robert Schjøtt

    In: Journal of Glaciology, 2019, vol. 65, no. 250, p. 263–269

    We show a strong difference in surface mass and energy balance of a mountain glacier and two sites on the ice sheet at 64°N in West Greenland using stake and automated weather station observations. Net surface mass balance is on average 2.2 m w.e. less negative at the coast compared with the ice sheet in the same elevation. We find a larger energy turnover at the ice sheet margin on...

    Ice-penetrating radar survey of the subsurface debris field at Camp Century, Greenland

    Karlsson, Nanna B. ; Colgan, William T. ; Binder, Daniel ; Machguth, Horst ; Abermann, Jakob ; Hansen, Karina ; Pedersen, Allan Ø.

    In: Cold Regions Science and Technology, 2019, vol. 165, p. 102788

    The warming climate is changing the surface dynamics of the Greenland Ice Sheet, including the balance between snowfall and melt. Increasing surface melt impacts the structure of the relatively porous near-surface layer known as firn. Camp Century, a base abandoned in 1967, now comprises a subsurface debris field within the firn in Northwest Greenland. We collected 80 km of 100 or 250 MHz...
