Abstract
    The factors that control the submarine melt rate at Greenland’s glaciers are uncertain and largely inferred from brief summer surveys in the fjords where glaciers terminate. Continuous records of water properties and velocity for the months September to May from two large Greenland fjords reveal strong variability on 3- to 10-day timescales as a result of pulses of water that are propagated from the shelf ocean.
