Abstract

The dynamics of the large outlet glaciers in Greenland is attracting both scientific and political attention due to the possible implications of a rising global sea level. Extensive glaciological and meteorological monitoring programmes have been implemented to quantify and track changes in the ice sheet and local glaciers (Ahlstrøm et al. 2008). The dynamic processes controlling the flow of the outlet glaciers are complex and poorly understood, involving a wealth of parameters such as bed conditions, hydrology and meteorological conditions. It is desirable to obtain as many fundamentally independent data sets as possible to understand and eventually predict the behaviour of the outlet glaciers.
