Abstract

Ice sheet modeling is an essential tool for estimating the effect of climate change on the Greenland ice sheet. A geological scenario of ice margin positions since the last glacial maximum is based on a review of existing literature and new datings of moraine systems. The difference between geology and model is large for areas without proper geological information and small, but still about 500-950 yr, for well-dated moraine systems. The simplified topography used by the model could induce errors
