Mean air temperatures of Greenland, supplement to: Reeh, Niels (1991): Parameterization of melt rate and surfaee temperature on the Greenland lee Sheet. Polarforschung, 59(3), 113-128

Niels Reeh
Melt rate and surface temperature on the Greenland ice sheet are parameterized in terms of snow accumulation, mean annual air temperatur and mean July air temperature. Melt rates are calculated using positive degree-days, and firn warming (i.e. the positive deviation of the temperature at 10-15 m depth from the mean annual air temperature) is estimated from the calculated amount of refrozen melt water in the firn. A comparison between observed and calculated melt rates shows...
