Short summary
We model the summer acceleration of ice velocities at a land-terminating margin of the Greenland Ice Sheet. Model results compare favourably against GPS data, reflecting positively on the model components and the datasets used. When we run the model into the future, we find that summer velocities increase with increasing levels of surface melt but that changes in annual velocities may be limited.
