The Geological Survey of Denmark (GEUS) has been collecting snowfall data on the ice sheet for the last 15 years at up to 9 locations per year.
In May 2017, NASA overshadowed the GEUS measurement line in South Greenland, producing snow thickness data that can be converted to snow mass using the field data. This approach can be applied elsewhere to gauge snowfall in the lower reaches of the ice sheet and investigate the performance of regional climate models.
The DTU student will work with NASA Operation IceBridge radar, LiDAR and GEUS field data. The project has started and so provides a roadmap how to reach powerful results in a set of known steps.
DTU Supervisor could be an employee from DTU Space.
