• Impact of Fjord Geometry on Grounding Line Stability 

      Åkesson, Henning; Nisancioglu, Kerim Hestnes; Nick, Faezeh M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-06-05)
      Recent and past retreat of marine-terminating glaciers are broadly consistent with observed ocean warming, yet responses vary significantly within regions experiencing similar ocean conditions. We assess how fjord geometry ...
    • Non-linear retreat of Jakobshavn Isbræ since the Little Ice Age controlled by geometry 

      Steiger, Nadine; Nisancioglu, Kerim H.; Åkesson, Henning; Fleurian, Basile de; Nick, Faezeh M. (Journal article, 2017-09)
      Rapid acceleration and retreat of Greenland's marine-terminating glaciers during the last two decades have initiated questions on the trigger and processes governing observed changes. Destabilization of these glaciers ...
    • Simulated retreat of Jakobshavn Isbræ since the Little Ice Age controlled by geometry 

      Steiger, Nadine; Nisancioglu, Kerim Hestnes; Åkesson, Henning; de Fleurian, Basile; Nick, Faezeh M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-07-12)
      Rapid retreat of Greenland's marine-terminating glaciers coincides with regional warming trends, which have broadly been used to explain these rapid changes. However, outlet glaciers within similar climate regimes experience ...
