FIELDWORK

Research/Observation Title

Ice mass change of the Greenland ice sheet

Science Summary (common)

[purpose] Accumulation measurement, ice flow speed measurement, calving glacier observation [outline] We perform accumulation rate and flow speed measurements inland of Greenland ice sheet near Qaanaaq.
