Northeast atlantic and Arctic oceans. The fjord under investigation is mid-way down the south-eastern flank of Greenland. Model data: Copernicus
Modelled flow in Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord in south-east Greenland. We found that large internal waves moving into the fjord were important for transporting heat to the glacier. Model is MITgcm, developed by Dr Neil Fraser.
