New Video: Gauging Greenland’s Melt
July 12, 2016
I shot this last week in Greenland after connecting with the UCLA team working on a major survey of water flow on the ice sheet.
The idea is to get extremely accurate ground level measurements of water flow thru the system, in order to better understand and calibrate data coming from the satellites.
That should make for more accurate measurements of water flow and mass loss over the whole ice sheet.
I’m posting this having just gotten back from following yet another group, the Black and Bloom folks from the UK. Was able to fly along on their put-in, and got some very good (I think) shots on the ice, and more interviews with the team. They are drilling down deeper into the whole phenomenon of dark snow/albedo, and melt.
More on that soon.
