Seven decades of Greenland glaciology - ANKER WEIDICK

A pioneer, Anker Weidick was the first, and for a very long time the only, scientist working on the Greenland glacier inventory. It is only now, several decades later, that widespread Greenland glacier inventories are attempted and with the aid of abundant computing power. ‘All the modern glacier sensitivity studies from Greenland rely on the pioneering work done by Anker Weidick well before it became “modern”.’

Here Arne gives a small lecture about his outstanding career.
