Short summary
This paper reports the analysis of 3-week oceanographic data obtained in the front of Flade Isblink Glacier in northeast Greenland. The major focus of research is considering the changes of water dynamics and the altering of temperature and salinity vertical distribution occurring during the storm event. We discuss the mechanisms that are responsible for the formation of two-layer circulation cell and release of cold and relatively fresh sub-glacial waters into the ocean.
