Understanding Greenland ice sheet hydrology using an integrated multi-scale approach
. Asa Rennermalm, Assistant Professor of Geography and CECI Affiliate
, recently published a paper in Environmental Research Letters. The paper aims to improve understanding of Greenland ice sheet hydrology and its impact on current and future ice sheet dynamics, as well as its impact on global sea level rise. The paper looks at critically important processes such as albedo feedbacks leading to enhanced surface melting and meltwater retention.
