Little Ice Age climate in southernmost Greenland inferred from quantitative geospatial analyses of alpine glacier reconstructions

To determine the LIA summer temperature relative to historical, we compare LIA paleoglacier ELAs with measured modern glacier ELAs. Detailed information on precipitation changes in southernmost Greenland's southernmost Greenland are included in this series, from a significantly cooler to much wetter than modern LIA. Between the LIA's foundation and 2019 CE, the alpine glaciers studied lost 56 percent of their area and 44 % of their centerline length. This paper outlines a workflow for regional-scale paleoglacier restoration and the first quantitative LIA summer paleotemperature measurement for southernmost Greenland using region-wide glacial data. Individual glaciers can respond variably to climate perturbations that lead to variation in their ELA and length, as our research shows that reconstruction of a large number of glaciers to infer past regional climatic data.
