The abandoned ice sheet base at Camp Century, Greenland, in a warming climate
Net ablation would guarantee the eventual remobilization of physical, chemical, biological, and radiological wastes abandoned at the site. While Camp Century and four other contemporaneous ice sheet bases were legally established under a Danish-U.S. treaty, the potential remobilization of their abandoned wastes, previously regarded as sequestered, represents an entirely new pathway of political dispute resulting from climate change.
The Camp Century Climate Monitoring Programme
In 2017 the Government of Denmark in agreement with the Government of Greenland decided to establish the Camp Century Climate Monitoring Programme. This programme, which is led by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), includes installing automated climate sensors at the site, collecting ice-penetrating radar observations, and performing computer projections.
