The glaciers and ice caps in the northernmost corner of Greenland have
responded to climate change in unexpected ways in the past.
This project will
investigate Hagen and Academy glaciers and the area around Independence Fjord.
Using ice-flow models and satellite observations, the past and present
behaviour of the area can be studied and the project will address questions
such as: What was the past ice extent? What triggered the observed retreat?
What is the future of the area?
