Selected measurement data

The Qaamarujup Sermia is a land-terminating outlet glacier of the Greenland Ice Sheet. It is located at 71°08′N, 51°10′W at the easternmost end of the Qaamarujup fjord. The glacier almost reached the coast during the Little Ice Age based on moraine deposits, but since then underwent a significant retreat. In the following tables you find some of the data from our automated weather stations that are located at the same positions where also Alfred Wegener and his team did their measurements.
