The authors announce the release of their 2018 Workshop Report on Estimating the Freshwater Flux from the Greenland Ice Sheet.

The workshop was held in December 2018, prior to the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, and focused on estimating freshwater fluxes from the Greenland Ice Sheet. The workshop was attended by approximately 40 international participants from a variety of disciplines (oceanography, glaciology, hydrology, etc.) using various methods (ship- and ground-based observations, satellites, models of varying resolution, etc.).

More than a summary of what was discussed during the workshop, the authors of this report tried to make it a more useful synthesis of the state of knowledge across these fields and made a list of recommendations for improving estimates of the freshwater flux from Greenland.
