Description

Ice surface-elevation change on Jakobshavn Isbrae Glacier in west Greenland, measured using ‘swath mode’ processing of CryoSat data, generated through the ESA Science for Society CryoTop project. The plot on the left shows high levels of thinning ice (red) measured between 2010 and 2013, and the plot on the right shows a localised pattern of ice thickening (blue) on the faster flowing central trunk, measured between 2014 and 2018.
