Estimated surface relief, surface depression volume, and surface lake volume maps of the Greenland Ice Sheet between 1980-2300

This ORDA repository location contains estimated contemporary and future surface relief, depression volume and surface lake volume maps of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

The maps are produced for 3 time slices which each use different greenhouse gas emission scenarios (i.e. historical or Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP)):

Two separate versions are produced for future time-slices:
1. incorporating the effects of the changing surface mass balance
2. incorporating the effects of both the changing surface mass balance and the changing ice sheet thickness and flow velocity

These datasets are the key outputs of our manuscript entitled:
"Enhanced formation of surface lakes in the interior of the Greenland Ice Sheet after 2100 due to growing surface relief".

The files are presented in GeoTiff (.tif) format.
