      Born, Andreas; Robinson, Alexander (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Radar reflections from the interior of the Greenland ice sheet contain a comprehensive archive of past accumulation rates, ice dynamics, and basal melting. Combining these data with dynamic ice sheet models may greatly aid ...
    • Non-linear retreat of Jakobshavn Isbræ since the Little Ice Age controlled by geometry

      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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Pervasive cold ice within a temperate glacier – implications for glacier thermal regimes, sediment transport and foreland geomorphology. 

      Reinardy, Benedict T.I.; Booth, Adam D; Hughes, Anna L.C.; Boston, Clare M.; Åkesson, Henning; Bakke, Jostein; Nesje, Atle; Giesen, Rianne H.; Pearce, Danni (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-03-07)
      This study suggests that cold-ice processes may be more widespread than previously assumed, even within temperate glacial systems. We present the first systematic mapping of cold ice at the snout of the temperate glacier ...
