This site hosts a variety of satellite image products documenting glacier/climate tribulations around Greenland. We rely mainly on NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS).
The blog includes text describing imagery documenting glacier front position changes, quantitative graphs illustrating glacier changes, animations illustrating: glacier retreat/advance; crack propagation; ice shelf break up. Development of this site has been supported by NSF Office of Polar Programs and The Ohio State University Climate Water and Carbon program.
The MODIS sensors on the NASA Terra and Aqua satellites have imaged the Earth more than once per day since 2000 and 2002, respectively.
