Late-summer rainfall amplifies melting of Greenland glaciers


ENVEO mapped ice velocity from TanDEM-X SAR data as contribution to a new study on amplified ice motion on glaciers in West-Greenland due to late-summer cyclonic rainfall. The results were recently published in Nature Geoscience (Doyle et al., 2015: Amplified melt and flow of the Greenland ice sheet driven by late-summer cyclonic rainfall.). The national newspapers ORF and the Austrian communication network for future topics APA-Science (Austrian Press Agency) published a summary of these research results to inform the interested general public.
