DTU Space participates in an international collaboration to reveal the connection between the Greenland ice sheet and the recently discovered glacial earthquakes . The sites of these seismological events are almost exclusively the main outlet glaciers, so-called ice streams, from the Greenland ice sheet, which have experienced dramatic accelerations and decelerations over the past few years, doubling the production of icebergs. Understanding the link between the ice stream dynamics and the glacial earthquakes may provide a much-needed insight into the recent dramatic mass loss of the Greenland ice sheet. The Danish effort is supported by the Commission for Scientific Research in Greenland (KVUG).
