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 […]
Researchers from The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), University of Colorado, NASA, John Hopkins University, University of Maryland, University of California and University of Alaska have developed a new method to account for variations in geothermal heat flow caused by sub-glacial bed topography under the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. View over […]
The recently published Danish Finance Act allocates funds for The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) to continue the Greenland Climate Network (GC-Net) as part of a complete, future monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet. GC-Net climate station. Spread across the enormous middle of the Greenland ice sheet is a network consisting […]
The Arctic’s largest ice shelf has detached a 113 km2 area. The last few years have been incredibly warm in northeast Greenland and this appears to be a progressive disintegration. The red area in the optical satellite image shows the ice lost the past two years from the part of the Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden Glacier called […]
New study shows the iceberg calving from the Greenlandic glaciers has increased with almost 20 percent since 1986. The data and code from the research is accessible for anyone interested. A new study led by The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and published with Earth Systems Science Data estimate the ice […]
Today is the ten-year anniversary of the monitoring program PROMICE with monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet and thus also free distribution of data from the program to the international research world. Read more about this event on this newspost from GEUS in danish.
A new study by researchers from Denmark and Canada, published inGeophysical Research Letters, has found that the climate models commonly used to simulate melting of the Greenland ice sheet tend to underestimate the impact of exceptionally warm weather episodes on the ice sheet. The study investigated the causes of ice melt during two exceptional melt […]
