The surface meltwater of the Greenland ice sheet is drained through englacial channels called moulins that reach the bedrock, and hence it contains substantial amounts of terrestrial sediments. The meltwater runoff from marineterminating glaciers form an upwelling turbid plume at the glacier front and drives overturning circulation in the fjord. We perform idealized numerical experiments on the turbid meltwater plume and associated sediment transport by using a non-hydrostatic ocean model coupled with a Lagrangian particle tracking system that simulates the dynamics of suspended sediments.
