The Greenland Ice Sheet reacts on the warming that Greenland has been subject to the last 10 years. The melt has increased and the glacier fronts have retreated. The melt has both global and local impact. Globally the increased melt results in sea level rise, change of the ocean currents and the atmospheric circulation over Greenland. Locally the position of the glacier front and the fresh water production is vital for fishery and transport. There are big gaps in our knowledge on the amount of freshwater produced each year and on how and where the water melts. The project will investigate these processes with focus on the Nuuk area.
