Impact of calving dynamics on Kangilernata Sermia, Greenland

Emily Kane, Eric Rignot, Jeremie Mouginot, Romain Millan, Xin Li, Bernd Scheuchl & Mark Fahnestock
Iceberg calving is a major component of glacier mass ablation that is not well understood due to a lack of detailed temporal and spatial observations. Here, we measure glacier speed and surface elevation at 3-minute interval, 5 meter spacing, using a portable radar interferometer at Kangilernata Sermia, Greenland in July 2016. We detect a 20% diurnal variation in glacier speed peaking at high spring tide when basal drag is high and lowering at neap tide....
