My research spans the path of a drop of water from when it melts on the surface (or at the base) of the ice sheet, flows through and under the ice sheet, and is exhausted into a Greenland fjord or under an Antarctic ice shelf. The water is then one half of the ice/ocean boundary, and this freshwater flux is increasing in the warming climate. Further downstream, the meltwater modifies fjord properties and coastal seas, changing oceanic and ice conditions.
