    • Disequilibrium, adaptation, and the Norse settlement of Greenland 

      Jackson, Rowan; Arneborg, Jette; Dugmore, Andrew; Madsen, Christian; McGovern, Tom; Smiarowski, Konrad; Streeter, Richard (2018-10) - Journal article
      There is increasing evidence to suggest that arctic cultures and ecosystems have followed non-linear responses to climate change. Norse Scandinavian farmers introduced agriculture to sub-arctic Greenland in the late tenth ...
    • From Mantle to Motzfeldt : a genetic model for syenite-hosted Ta,Nb-mineralisation 

      Finch, Adrian A.; McCreath, Jamie A; Reekie, Callum D.J.; Hutchison, William; Ismaila, Abdulmalik; Armour-Brown, Ashlyn; Andersen, Tom; Simonsen, Siri L. (2019-04) - Journal article
      A genetic model for the Motzfeldt Tantalum-Niobium-rich syenite in south-west Greenland, considered to be one of the world’s largest Ta prospects, is presented. The Motzfeldt primary magma formed early in regional Gardar ...
    • A full-Stokes 3D calving model applied to a large Greenlandic glacier 

      Todd, Joe; Christoffersen, Poul; Zwinger, Thomas; Råback, Peter; Chauché, Nolwenn; Benn, Doug; Luckman, Adrian; Ryan, Johnny; Toberg, Nick; Slater, Donald; Hubbard, Alun (2018-03-01) - Journal article
      Iceberg calving accounts for around half of all mass loss from both the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. The diverse nature of calving and its complex links to both internal dynamics and climate make it challenging to ...
    • Glacier calving in Greenland 

      Benn, Douglas I.; Cowton, Tom; Todd, Joe; Luckman, Adrian (2017-12) - Journal item
      In combination, the breakaway of icebergs (calving) and submarine melting at marineterminating glaciers account for between one third and one half of the mass annually discharged from the Greenland Ice Sheet into the ocean. ...
    • Linear response of east Greenland’s tidewater glaciers to ocean/atmosphere warming 

      Cowton, Tom; Sole, Andrew; Nienow, Peter; Slater, Donald; Christoffersen, Poul (2018-07-16) - Journal article
      Predicting the retreat of tidewater outlet glaciers forms a major obstacle to forecasting the rate of mass loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet. This reflects the challenges of modeling the highly dynamic, topographically ...
    • Physical conditions of fast glacier flow : 3. Seasonally-evolving ice deformation on Store Glacier, West Greenland 

      Young, T. J.; Christoffersen, P.; Doyle, S. H.; Nicholls, K. W.; Stewart, C. L.; Hubbard, B.; Hubbard, A.; Lok, L. B.; Brennan, P.; Benn, D. I.; Luckman, A.; Bougamont, M. (2019-01) - Journal article
      Temporal variations in ice sheet flow directly impact the internal structure within ice sheets through englacial deformation. Large‐scale changes in the vertical stratigraphy within ice sheets have been previously conducted ...
    • Utility of 222Rn as a passive tracer of subglacial distributed system drainage 

      Linhoff, Benjamin S.; Charette, Matthew A.; Nienow, Peter W.; Wadham, Jemma L.; Tedstone, Andrew J.; Cowton, Tom (2017-03-15) - Journal article
      Water flow beneath the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) has been shown to include slow-inefficient (distributed) and fast-efficient (channelized) drainage systems, in response to meltwater delivery to the bed via both moulins ...
