Abstract: The Greenland Inland Traverse (GrIT) transports fuel and cargo over snow to resupply science stations on the Greenland ice sheet from Thule Air Base. GrIT offers an alternative to the traditional LC-130 airlift resupply from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. In this report, we assess the economics of GrIT relative to airlift resupply operations by comparing the costs of each mode to deliver the same fuel and cargo based on data from the 2012 and 2014 seasons.
