The first team of researchers from GEUS has left for Greenland in the field season of 2022. As of every year, this is the culmination on months of preparing with field logistics and mandatory safety courses. The field season of GEUS research in Greenland has officially started as of the middle of April. […]

Glaciologists from GEUS practice glacier safety on a regular basis in order to maintain nessecary safety skilld needed for field work on the Greenland Ice Sheet. In March 2022 they went to Iceland to practice safety and crevasse rescue and here you can tag along. “How the hell do you prepare for that?!” exclaims […]
This year, the annual documentary festival CPH DOX opened with the film Into the Ice, a documentary following three glaciologists in their work on the Greenland ice sheet. One of the scientists is PROMICE professor Jason Box from the Department of Glaciology and Climate at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) in Copenhagen. […]
The Greenland Ice Sheet is melting from the bottom up, caused in part by energy convection from melt water within the ice. An idea partly coined by researchers at GEUS and now supported by first field observations. The effect of meltwater descending from the surface of the ice sheet down to the bed – […]
The scientific journal GEUS Bulletin just announced the most popular publications of 2021 and a paper with three PROMICE researchers are at the top. A scientific paper with authors from the PROMICE team just made the top of ‘2021 most read and downloaded’ publications in the scientific journal GEUS Bulletin. The publication ‘Greenland bare-ice […]
GEUS and PROMICE professor Jason Box recently made the front page in Danish national media with testimony of algal blooms and rain on the Greenland ice sheet. PROMICE field work helps quantify the ice algae blooms and their effect on melting. Autumn 2021, Professor Jason Box and two PROMICE colleagues landed on what could […]
Every type of loss and influx of ice and snow on the Greenland Ice Sheet has now been gathered in one model, a so-called input/output-model, which provides scientists worldwide with the best information about what is actually happening with the large ice area in the north. It’s clear to everyone, that the Greenland Ice Sheet […]
The Programme for Monitoring the Greenland Ice Sheet has published a full description of calculations, code and models behind the automatic weather stations located in the ice sheet making it easier for researchers all over to incorporate the information. A PROMICE automatic weather station (UPE_U) photographed on 4 August 2018. The numbers shown in the […]
Now anyone can see how quickly the ice that forms the Greenland Ice Sheet is moving, as new data roll in approximately every other week. This provides researchers all over the world with the best opportunities to discover and predict changes in the enormous, northernly mass of ice. The Greenland Ice Sheet is not still […]
By Peter Bondo Under the name GIOS – Greenland Integrated Observing System – the Danish Realm will bring the collection of data into a completely new era. The project runs until the end of 2025 when a new research infrastructure must be in place and ready to provide measurements of changes in air, ice, land and […]
