WORRYING RESULTS FROM GREENLAND
Chris Mooney, a science and environment reporter from The Washignton Post wrote this article about two studies, which have mapped the effect of climate change on Greenland - one of these is our paper - Read it HERE.
In the WP article, my colleague from INSTAAR (Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research) Dr. Irina Overeem put it very nicely when saying “It’s like a fire hose with slurry, and it’s been turned on way faster now, because there’s so much more meltwater”. Our study shows, that indeed, all this meltwater causes delta expansion, also termed 'progradation'. The deltas are growing significantly as the temperatures are rising in more recent times.
The second study is led by Mathieu Morlighem and published in Geophysical Research Letters. It uses data from NASA's OMG mission ('Ocens Melting Greenland) - gotta love that acronym! - to conclude that the Greenland Icesheet is far more exposed to the planet's warming oceans than previously known.

I'm really happy about this video that was made by Underground Channel to promote our work on the Nature paper.
Frederik Wolf Teglhus from Underground Channel did this video. Check out their beautiful videos on geo-related research
FOLKEMØDET BORNHOLM, DENMARK
In June, I had the great pleasure to take part in a panel discussion on climate change and adaptation.
Together with the Dean of Research at the Danish Technical University Prof. Katrine Krogh Andersen, Asst. Prof. at Niels Bohr Institute Peter Ditlevsen and Prof. Peter Birch Sørensen from the Economics Department at University of Copenhagen, we discussed the implications of adapting our society to a changing climate.
'Folkemødet' means 'Public Meeting' and aims at bringing politicians, reearchers, stakeholders etc closer to the public. Houndreds of events were programmed during the four day meeting alongside with great food, alcohol and sun on the beautiful island of Bornholm.
I'll gladly take part in this in the future!
