Abstract

This paper demonstrates some of the possibilities offered by GIS in arctic geomorphology. GIS is used for simulating the topography and volume of Pjetursson Glacier, Disko, Central West Greenland at different times in history. The volume found shows good correspondance with volumes calculated from empiric formulas. An energy balance model is established in the frame of a rasterbased GIS. The model is used for demonstrating the significance of surrounding topography, on components in the energy balance
