The main objective is to quantify the annual mass loss of the Greenland ice sheet, track changes in the extent of local glaciers and ice caps, and track changes in the position of the ice-sheet margin. Network type: - Observing and modelling the ice-sheet surface-mass balance - Quantifying the mass loss caused by iceberg calving - Monitoring the change of glaciers and ice caps in Greenland - Outlook
