Current Surface Mass Budget of the Greenland Ice Sheet

Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), February 2017

Greenland has gained 500 Gt of ice this winter (2016-2017)

Here you can follow the daily surface mass balance on the Greenland Ice Sheet. The snow and ice model from one of DMI’s climate models is driven every six hours with snowfall, sunlight and other parameters from a research weather model for Greenland, Hirlam-Newsnow.
