As the surface mass budget (SMB) year ends, it’s time for our now traditional look-back at the season since the 1st September 2016.

An interruption in normal Polar Portal service this week has brought unexpected benefits for DMI’s daily surface mass balance data from Greenland… upgrading to the cutting edge HARMONIE-AROME modelling system.
This summer’s ablation season began on June 11 – the first of three days in a row with more than one gigatonne mass loss across Greenland. This date places this year on a shared 12th place over the 1981-2017 period, just one day from June 12, which...
One week ago, we launched a new and improved surface mass balance data product on the Polar Portal. The improvements in the underlying model include changes in the details of how water from melted snow percolates into the snow layers below, where it...
A new and improved surface mass balance data product has just been launched on the Polar Portal. This upgrade to the existing model not only improves the way the snow pack is handled in the model used to calculate surface mass balance, it also...
Polar Portal scientists make an important step to more accurately determine how much snow melts on Greenland – and what happens to the water after ice and snow melts.
This winter has seen a series of unusual weather hit the Arctic in general, it has been much warmer than average in the high Arctic since October though there have also been some periods of extreme cold, especially in western Greenland but also new...
After an unusually warm Arctic this year, large amounts of snow have fallen on the Greenland ice sheet.
Sæsonens vigtigste resultater for Grønlands indlandsis og den arktiske havis opsummeres nu i en sæsonrapport på den danske Polar Portal
The short answer is about 100 million Olympic-size swimming pools a year.
European Space Agencys ”Climate Change Initiative” for Grønland, et projekt samarbejde mellem fire danske institutioner og fem internationale partnere, har netop frigivet en lang række satellit-baserede målinger af ændringer i Grønlands indlandsis.
The summer ice loss season in Greenland started on the 6th June this year, since then the ice sheet has lost at least 1 Gigatonne of ice to the ocean every day. 1 Gigatonne of ice is one billion (one thousand million) tonnes and corresponds to 1...
The Greenland melt season has finally begun and then some.
ACT-16 ekspedition undersøger sne og firn processer på Indlandsisen i Grønland
Klimaforandringer og ekstreme vejrforhold - herunder ekstreme vejrmønstre over Nordvesteuropa – er relateret til højtryks-vejrsystemer over Grønland....
