Science / project plan

This project aims to determine the sensitivity of the Greenland Ice Sheet and glaciers in northeastern Greenland to climate changes during our current interglacial period, the Holocene (the past 11,650 years). We will determine the timing and magnitude of past ice fluctuations using lake sediments near the ice margins and surface exposure dating of glacial landforms. We will also extract lake sediment cores from isolated lake basins near the coast to reconstruct relative sea level changes.
