Lagrangian thinning rates at 79°N Glacier between 2017 and 2018


Estimated Lagrangian thinning rates from phase-sensitive radar (pRES) measurements at 41 locations at 79°N Glacier (Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden Glacier) in northeast Greenland between 2017 and 2018 (see link in "Further details"). Thinning rates are based on pRES-derived ice thicknesses in 2017 and 2018. Off-nadir thinning rates estimates are minimum values and are based on the first basal return.

Data were measured in the field by Daniel Steinhage, Niklas Neckel, and Ole Zeising. Data processing was done by Ole Zeising, and data analysis by Ole Zeising and Angelika Humbert. This dataset has been planned by Angelika Humbert as part of the iGRIFF expeditions and as a contribution to GROCE.If you have questions, please contact Ole Zeising ( or co-authors.
