(Please note unusual location)

The net annual loss of ice in Greenland is currently around 200 gigatonnes, which is enough to raise sea level by 0.6 mm per year. Around half this loss is caused by surface melting linked to atmospheric warming, the other half is lost by increased flow and discharge of icebergs into fjords. Whereas a number of studies clearly show that the contribution to sea level rise is increasing, the magnitude of future rates is extremely uncertain. This talk will outline the recent change of the Greenland Ice Sheet and explain how it is linked to changes in atmospheric as well as oceanographic conditions.
