Abstract

This dataset comprises modelled and observational solid and liquid coastal freshwater fluxes from land ice in Greenland, Canadian Arctic Archipelago, Svalbard and Iceland. Tundra runoff from all these land areas is also included. The fluxes have been routed to coastal grid cells around the margins of the land areas. The fluxes are provided in three fields: tundra, surface runoff over ice, solid ice discharge (icebergs, for Greenland only). The data are on a 5 km polar stereographic projection with a monthly time step and are in a netcdf format. Detailed description of the derivation of the data can be found in an associated paper in JGR-Oceans: Bamber J.L, et al "Land ice freshwater budget of the Arctic and North Atlantic Oceans. Part I: Data, methods and results". This dataset contains monthly resolution runoff and annual resolution discharge (at monthly time steps) from 01/01/1958 to 31/12/2016.
