More than a quarter of the currently observed average sea-level rise originates from the mass loss of Greenland's massive ice cap.
The aim of GROCE is to contribute to a better understanding of the interaction between the the melting Greenland ice sheet and the adjacent warming ocean, in order to improve our forecasting abilities of sea-level rise.
GROCE encompasses a large number of different research disciplines. Find here the details about the 11 subprojects.
Here you can find a blog about the expedition of the German vessel Polarstern to the front of the 79 °N Glacier in September 2017.
