Meltwater storage, Greenland Icesheet
Location: Greenland Icecap Lat & Long: 67°04'N, 49°23'W
Members: Tom Gribbin (University of Bristol) with Joseph Cook (University of Sheffield), Andrew Tedstone (Bristol University)
Objectives: In 2016 a team of researchers from Bristol, Sheffield, Leeds, Potsdam, Aberystwyth and NASA JPL camped on the Greenland ice sheet throughout the summer melt season. Tom will join them in 2017 looking to see if meltwater storage is related to the physical properties of the weathering crust.
