• The Arctic sea ice extent change connected to Pacific decadal variability 

      Yang, Xiao-Ying; Wang, Guihua; Keenlyside, Noel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      After an unprecedented retreat, the total Arctic sea ice cover for the post-2007 period is characterized by low extent and a remarkable increase in annual cycle amplitude. We have identified the leading role of spring ...
    • Combined influence of oceanic and atmospheric circulations on Greenland sea ice concentration 

      Chatterjee, Sourav; Raj, Roshin Pappukutty; Bertino, Laurent; Mernild, Jacob Sebastian Haugaard; Subeesh, Meethale P.; Murukesh, Nuncio; Ravichandran, Muthalagu (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The amount and spatial extent of Greenland Sea (GS) ice are primarily controlled by the sea ice export across the Fram Strait (FS) and by local seasonal sea ice formation, melting, and sea ice dynamics. In this study, using ...
    • Exceptionally high heat flux needed to sustain the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream 

      Smith-Johnsen, Silje; de Fleurian, Basile; Schlegel, Nicole; Seroussi, Hélène; Nisancioglu, Kerim Hestnes (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The Northeast Greenland Ice Stream (NEGIS) currently drains more than 10 % of the Greenland Ice Sheet area and has recently undergone significant dynamic changes. It is therefore critical to accurately represent this feature ...
    • GrSMBMIP: intercomparison of the modelled 1980-2012 surface mass balance over the Greenland Ice Sheet 

      Fettweis, Xavier; Hofer, Stefan; Krebs-Kanzow, Uta; Amory, Charles; Aoki, Teruo; Berends, Constantijn J.; Born, Andreas; Box, Jason E.; Delhasse, Alison; Fujita, Koji; Gierz, Paul; Goelzer, Heiko; Hanna, Edward; Hashimoto, Akihiro; Huybrechts, Philippe; Kapsch, Marie-Luise; King, Michaela D.; Kittel, Christoph; Lang, Charlotte; Langen, Peter L.; Lenaerts, Jan T.M.; Liston, Glen E.; Lohmann, Gerrit; Mernild, Jacob Sebastian Haugaard; Mikolajewicz, Uwe; Modali, Kameswarrao; Mottram, Ruth H.; Niwano, Masashi; Noël, Brice; Ryan, Jonathan C.; Smith, Amy; Streffing, Jan; Tedesco, Marco; Van de Berg, Willem Jan; Van den Broeke, Michiel; Van de Wal, Rodecrick S.; Von Kampenhout, Leo; Wilton, David; Wouters, Bert; Ziemen, Florian; Zolles, Tobias (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Observations and models agree that the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) surface mass balance (SMB) has decreased since the end of the 1990s due to an increase in meltwater runoff and that this trend will accelerate in the future. ...
    • Passive seismic recording of cryoseisms in Adventdalen, Svalbard 

      Romeyn, Rowan; Hanssen, Alfred; Ruud, Bent Ole; Stemland, Helene Meling; Johansen, Tor Arne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      A series of transient seismic events were discovered in passive seismic recordings from 2-D geophone arrays deployed at a frost polygon site in Adventdalen, Svalbard. These events contain a high proportion of surface wave ...
    • Sea ice thickness from air-coupled flexural waves 

      Romeyn, Rowan; Hanssen, Alfred; Ruud, Bent Ole; Johansen, Tor Arne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Air-coupled flexural waves (ACFWs) appear as wave trains of constant frequency that arrive in advance of the direct air wave from an impulsive source travelling over a floating ice sheet. The frequency of these waves varies ...
