Record #214292:

Coastal meltwater plume detection and its response to melting variations around the Greenland Ice Sheet / Wenkai Guo.

Title: Coastal meltwater plume detection and its response to melting variations around the Greenland Ice Sheet / Wenkai Guo.
Author(s): Guo, Wenkai.
Date: 2015.
Publisher: Cambridge :
Abstract: Uses multi-year Landsat data to derive time series of water plume location, size and shape using proxies for identifying suspended sediment, salinity and thermal signals in several fjords in Greenland. Compares seasonal and inter-annual variations in location, size and shape of various plumes with variations in ice-sheet melt extent achieved from Special Sensor Microwate/Imager passive microwave data and cumulative melt derived from positive degree day model, in order to examine correlations between ice sheet melting and delivery of water to ice sheet margins.
Notes:

Unpublished dissertation submitted in partial fulfilmnet of requirements for the degree of Master of Philosophy in Polar Studies, University of Cambridge.
