Short summary
A total of 9 years of ice velocity and surface height data obtained from a variety of satellites are used to estimate the water run-off from the northern arm of the Humboldt Glacier in NW Greenland. This represents the first direct measurement of water run-off from a large Greenland glacier, and it complements the iceberg calving flux measurements also based on satellite data. This approach should help improve mass loss estimates for some large Greenland glaciers.
