Estimate mass loss of the Greenland Ice sheet from gravity satellite measurements.

Satellites gravimetry is observing that Greenland and other big ice-sheets like Antarctica are melting. In recent years these satellites are also seeing that in several regions the changes exhibit an acceleration._x000D_ _x000D_ The aim is to use GRACE gravimetry over the past decade to study these changes in the mass of the ice-caps with the aim to quantifying an existence of an _x000D_ accelerating/decelerating mass change. _x000D_ _x000D_ Comparison/combination with recent independent observations from GPS or airborne campaigns can be used to validate the findings and also study in detail how the ice-sheets like Greenland are melting. _x000D_ _x000D_ _x000D_ UddGeofysikogrumteknologi_x000D_ FagomrKortlægningognavigation_x000D_ FagomrMiljøogklimaovervågning_x000D_ FagomrJordensfysikogressourcer_x000D_ _x000D_ UddElektroteknologi_x000D_ FagomrSpacetechnology_x000D_ FagomrJordobservation_x000D_ Space Technology
