Icebergs Research

This page is a resource for available data and software associated with our iceberg research. Please see the publications page for relevant literature or Twitter for animations, images, and news. This page will continually evolve. Please contact us if you use these data, or have questions or comments. 

Iceberg Playing Cards: Want to color some icebergs that are based on real subsurface and aerial data (i.e., from multibeam sonar and drones)? Yes, then here they are! Thanks to Kristin Schild for putting these together, and watch this space for more to come...

Iceberg "trackers"

For now, we have the GPS position data for icebergs in Sermilik Fjord available from George Roth's MS thesis, written up in Sutherland et al. 2014 in GRL. These are in text files here:
- year 1 (2012-2013)
- year 2 (2013-2014)

In the future, look for more iceberg 'tracker' data from more years in Sermilik Fjord, Uummannaq Bay, and Jakobshavn Isbrae. 

Landsat 8 imagery

Data from Dan Sulak's paper on iceberg distributions in Sermilik Fjord, and the fjords in front of Rink Isbrae and KS glaciers in the Uummannaq area of west Greenland. Available soon.  

Iceberg melt code

MATLAB Code to implement common melt parameterizations and geometric constraints. Under construction.
