- The Ground Effect: Meltwater & Substrate Driving the Melt-Evolution in Arctic Landscapes
- Anika Pinzer (UAF Geophysical Institute)
- April 06, 2022
Please join us to hear Anika describe her research at 3 locations near Utqiaġvik, each with a distinctly different substrate.
- snow melt dramatically lowers the albedo of the landscape, increasing solar energy absorption by a factor of 4 to 8
- warm weather drives this transition — the speed of which is governed by complex interactions between the snow, meltwater, and newly-formed internal and basal ice features
