Science / project summary
Greenland and the Arctic are changing rapidly, as dramatically manifested in the loss of ice from the Greenland Ice Sheet and rapid variations in the dynamic behavior of its outlet glaciers. Ice lost from Greenland contributes directly to changes in sea level, and influences climate indirectly through perturbations to ocean circulation and Earth's albedo. Investigations of the causes and consequences of changes in the Greenland Ice Sheet increasingly highlight the links between the solid Earth and the ice, ocean, and atmosphere systems. The Greenland Ice Sheet Monitoring Network (GLISN) is a broadband, multi-use seismological network, enhanced by selected geodetic observations, designed with the capability to allow researchers to understand the changes currently occurring in the Arctic, and with the operational characteristics necessary to enable response to those changes as understanding improves. GLISN was established through an international collaboration, with 10 nations coordinating their efforts to develop the current 32-station observing network during the last four years. In the U.S., the GLISN development effort has been undertaken on behalf of the seismological community by the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), a community-governed consortium, with funding from an NSF MRI award; IRIS has also provided leadership for the International GLISN project. All data from the network are freely and openly available, with complete metadata, via the IRIS Data Management Center and additional data centers in Europe. Of the 32 GLISN stations, 26 have commitments of long-term operational support from international partners. This proposal requests support for continued operations of six key stations of the network, as well as data quality control and data-management for the network. It also requests support for improvements to the telemetry capability at remote stations to maximize the scientific utility of the data, reduce data latency, and reduce logistics costs. Continued leadership by IRIS in the management and coordination of the International GLISN effort will ensure continued return of high-quality data from the full 32-station network.
