Bridging the trenches: ice sheet monitoring for the atmosphere and oceans in PROMICE and INTAROS

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


While it is often professed that scientific breakthroughs are more likely to occur between traditional fields of research rather than within them, the reality is often that existing structures prevail. The INTAROS Project is dedicated to unleash the potential of integrating Arctic monitoring efforts across traditional disciplines by taking a different view. While the PROMICE programme for monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet was born out of a need to quantify a major contribution to sea level change, a leap across the trench reveals that important variables of the atmosphere and oceans are addressed and may be utilized for entirely different purposes than originally intended. Here we present our PROMICE monitoring effort, enhanced through INTAROS, and why we think it might turn out to be useful for You. Moreover, we hope to learn from discussions with You, how our 20+ Arctic ice sheet weather stations and remote sensing programme could service Your particular science or monitoring needs.
