Greenland ice sheet mass loss to the marine environment occurs by some combination of iceberg calving and underwater melting (referred to here as marine ice loss, L M ). This study quantifies the relation between L M and meltwater runoff (R) at the ice sheet scale. A theoretical basis is presented explaining how variability in R can be expected to govern much of the L M variability over annual to decadal time scales. It is found that R enhances L M through three processes: 1) increased glacierdoi:10.1175/jcli-d-12-00546.1 fatcat:abdnjkidubfhpnghgv2fncvsay
