Exploring The Greenland Ice Sheet Stability In A Changing Arctic System

Snow on Ice takes a new look at the Arctic climate. What if the current warming could actually stabilize the Greenland Ice Sheet? What if the loss of Arctic Sea Ice brings unexpected changes to the Arctic hydrologic cycle? Newly exposed ocean water could cause  cold and dry Arctic air masses to warm, bringing additional moisture to this region, some of which could fall as additional snow. More snow on Greenland in the winter, with some lasting through the summer, would cause the ice sheet to grow and begin to stabilize. This is the hypothesis that the Snow on Ice project will examine.

Ice cores have a story to tell in Greenland and its not good news https://t.co/GTlR4A0TOL via @washingtonpost

So many great ideas on how to merge the important work being done on this Greenland Ice Sheet research...when project meetings move to another level! @LamontEarth @UBGeology
