Record #117994:

Calculated variations of annual ice ablation at the margin of the Greenland ice sheet, West Greenland, 1961-90 / Roger J. Braithwaite, Ole B. Oleson, Henrik Højmark Thomsen.

Title: Calculated variations of annual ice ablation at the margin of the Greenland ice sheet, West Greenland, 1961-90 / Roger J. Braithwaite, Ole B. Oleson, Henrik Højmark Thomsen.
Author(s): Braithwaite, Roger J.
Oleson, Ole B.
Thomsen, Henrik Højmark.
Date: 1992.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1992.), Vol. 38(129) (1992)
Abstract: Recent measurements by satellite altimetry show that southern part of ice sheet has thickened since mid-1970s. To explain this, recent ablation variations are analyzed at three sites. Pattern of ablation variations is remarkably similar at all three, with no sign of any trend towards increased ablation in recent years. Observed thickening may be transient phenomenon without any long-term effect on volume of ice sheet or world sea level. Future monitoring programme needs to detect long-term changes against beckground of natural variations.
