Peter Sinclair of Yale Climate Connections spent some time in the field with us last week covering our 2016 fieldwork. Check out the piece he put together about our project: http://www.yaleclimateconnections.org/2016/07/sea-level-rise-impacts-of-greenland-ice-melt/
New Paper: "Characterizing supraglacial meltwater channel hydraulics on the Greenland Ice Sheet from in situ observations"
Check out our new paper:
Characterizing supraglacial meltwater channel hydraulics on the Greenland Ice Sheet from in sity observations
this paper uses a collection of field data from multiple locations and multiple years to derive characteristics of supraglacial meltwater channel hydraulics on the Greenland Ice Sheet. The lead author of this study is Colin J. Gleason, an assistant professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst.
I am spending this summer in Greenland studying the efficiency of the drainage system of the Greenland Ice Sheet ablation zone. This is part of a multi-year NASA Cryosphere funded project, titled: "Drainage Efficiency of the Greenland Ice Sheet". You can follow our work and progress on the NASA Earth Observatory blog.
My name is Lincoln H Pitcher. I am a graduate student in the Department of Geography at UCLA. My research focuses hydrologic and cryospheric systems and interfaces with emerging ground, air and spaceborne remote sensing and geospatial technologies. I aim to use these emerging technologies to enhance understanding of remote and logistically inaccessible places. My current research focuses on both Greenland and Arctic Alaska.
