For an overview go here. For ice surface views, go here. For dual ice surface and bedrock views, go here.
No isostatic rebound included in the bedrock views. (When the ice melts, the earth beneath will rise as she is unburdened. This effect is not included in the bedrock depictions here.)
The following is a composite image of ice surface, ice velocity and bedrock, from left to right. Each is detailed below.
Bedrock below Dove Bugt, note the areas sparse bathymetry data where
the contours are suspiciously long and straight.
Surface ice contours of Storstrommen and L. Bistrup Brae
Here are some of Helheim. The first is the velocity from Rignot(2012)
200 m bedrock contours.
Ice surface contours on Helheim, overlaid over bedrock colors.
Here are some models of subsurface hydrology in NE Greenland from Lewis(2009) DOI: 10.1002/hyp.7343
The following image is a key to the previous image
