The annual mass budget of the Greenland ice sheet (1992) and the fresh-water flux from Greenland including the coasts is determined using high-resolution regional climate model (REMO) simulations. The climate model is modified to include processes such as lateral flow over Greenland using a newly developed routing scheme, the effect of sub-grid-scale surface heterogeneity (orography) on surface temperature and runoff and an improved snow and ice model for the Greenland ice sheet for surface processes on the ice sheet. The high-resolution (0.125° grid size) simulations of accumulation and runoff fields are also assessed compared to the lower-resolution (0.5° grid size) simulations.

More about this publication?
  • The Annals of Glaciology is a peer-reviewed, thematic journal published 2 to 4 times a year by the International Glaciological Society (IGS). Publication frequency is determined and volume/issue numbers assigned by the IGS Council on a year-to-year basis and with a lead time of 3 to 4 years. The Annals of Glaciology is included in the ISI Science Citation Index from volume 50, number 50 onwards.

    Themes can be on any aspect of the study of snow and ice. Individual members can make a suggestion for a theme for an Annals issue to the Secretary General, who will forward it to the IGS Publications Committee. The IGS Publication Committee will make a recommendation for an individual themed Annals issue, together with a potential Annals Chief Editor for that issue, to IGS Council. The IGS Council will make the decision whether to proceed, taking into account the spread of topics and the overall capacity for publication of pages in Annals.
