The article offers information on the ice flow modeling, with the perspective on bedrock adjustment patterns of the Greenland ice sheet. It states that several data has been obtained from Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites regarding the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) and the ice mass changes. It mentions that Interactions between ice surface and atmosphere are treated with the surface mass balance (SMB) gradient method.

    Annual precipitation, evaporation, and calculated accumulation from reanalysis model outputs have been investigated for the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS), based on the common period of 1989-2001. The ERA-40 and ERA-interim reanalysis data showed better agreement with observations than do NCEP-1 and...

    We present detailed records of lake discharge, ice motion and passive seismicity capturing the behaviour and processes preceding, during and following the rapid drainage of a ~4 km2 supraglacial lake through 1.1-km-thick ice on the western margin of the Greenland Ice Sheet. Peak discharge of...
