Ice surface temperature, albedo, and surface elevation change of glaciers and ice caps of the Queen Elizabeth Islands, Nunavut, Canada, 1995-2015.Download
Inter-annual variability in glacier and ice cap surface mass balance in the Queen Elizabeth Islands (QEI), Arctic Canada, is driven primarily by variability in summer melt. Mean summer (June-August) QEI glacier surface temperatures (LSTs) and shortwave broadband black-sky surface albedo (BSA) are...
Higher latitudes have experienced a significant change in climate and physical processes within recent years. This study focuses on the Greenland Ice Sheet and surrounding ocean waters. It has been shown that relatively warm ocean waters may accelerate melt production of marine terminating...
Recent increases in Arctic freshwater flux affects Labrador Sea convection and Atlantic overturning circulationDownload
The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is an important component of ocean thermohaline circulation. Melting of Greenland’s ice sheet is freshening the North Atlantic; however, whether the augmented freshwater flux is disrupting the AMOC is unclear. Dense Labrador Sea Water (LSW),...
