New paper: Evidence for Greenland ice sheet meltwater retention

Our new paper published in the Cryosphere suggest large amount of Greenland ice sheet meltwater may be retained and released with months delay. Our analysis is one of few studies using actual measurements of meltwater export from the ice sheet, but only applies to a small portion of the ice sheet. The big question now is how widespread this phenomena is around the perimeter of the Greenland ice sheet.
