Dark ice dynamics of the south-west Greenland Ice Sheet, 2000-2016
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01117

Summary

Abstract:
Metrics of dark ice extent and duration, and snowline retreat estimates, for the south-west ablation zone of the Greenland Ice Sheet, derived from MODIS satellite imagery. These metrics are provided on a ~613 m grid at annual resolution and cover the melt season, defined as June-July-August each year. All scripts used to generate the metrics are also provided, as well as the scripts which generate the plots found in the referenced publication.

Funding was provided by the NERC grant NE/M021025/1.
