Record #118759:

Meltwater refreezing in the accumulation area of the Greenland ice sheet: Pâkitsoq, summer 1991 / Roger J. Braithwaite, W. Tad Pfeffer, H. Blatter, Neil Frank Humphrey.

Title: Meltwater refreezing in the accumulation area of the Greenland ice sheet: Pâkitsoq, summer 1991 / Roger J. Braithwaite, W. Tad Pfeffer, H. Blatter, Neil Frank Humphrey.
Author(s): Braithwaite, Roger J.
Pfeffer, W. Tad.
Blatter, H.
Humphrey, Neil Frank.
Date: 1992.
In: Grønlands Geologiske Undersøgelse. Rapport. (1992.), Vol. 155 (1992)
Abstract: Discusses implication of meltwater refreezing on rise in sea level, with reference to possible climate warming. Increased meltwater in accumulation area will be refrozen and will not reach sea; however, refreezing process will decrease permeability of firn, creating impermeable ice, so meltwater will then run into sea. Reviews recent international research in Greenland on this topic.
