Fig. 3

Spatial distribution of subglacial lakes identified in the radar echo sounding data. Lakes are colour-coded according to confidence level and proportionate in size to the length of the lake reflector. Black circles represent known subglacial lakes, squares depict collapse basins (black = in existing literature, green = this study). Ice-surface elevation contours at 500 m intervals are shown in grey28, with the equilibrium line altitude in blue (for the period 2000–2009) using MAR 3.5 forced by ERA-Interim63 and ice divides depicted by the thick black lines64. Supraglacial lake data derived from MODIS between 2005–2009 is also displayed65. Background map shows MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Sheet velocity map derived from InSAR66. Inset map displays OIB radar flight lines (1993–2016) used in this study
