The Glaciofluvial Environment of Linnébreen, Spitsbergen, Svalbard
Suspended sediment concentrations (SSC), meltwater discharge and local climatic conditions of the Linné glaciofluvial system were monitored from July 21 to August 9, 2010 in order to determine the temporal relationships ...
The Role of Underflows and Weather on Sediment Distribution in Glacial-Fed Lake Linné, Svalbard, Norway
Climate change is without doubt one of the most problematic issues that society will need to find a solution in the future to prevent further damage. According to the IPCC’s fourth assessment report in 2007, recent climate ...
Gravity Core Geochemistry at the Kronebreen Glacier, Svalbard, Norway: Quantifying Climate Flux in a Glacimarine Setting
Darren's thesis looks at the geochemistry and lithosstratigraphy of six cores recovered along a proximal to distal transect in Kongsfjord.
A Characterization of the Biology and Nutrient Cycling of Two Glacial Lakes in Isfjord Radio, Svalbard
Due to the fact that lakes in the high arctic are only exposed for two to three months out of the year, very little is known about the microbiology and nutrient cycling that occur in this region. Of greatest interest in ...
Linnedalen main weather station (2010 & 2011)
These data are from the main weather station in Linne' Valley -- 200 meters south of Lake Linne.
Characterizing fjord oceanography near tidewater glaciers Kronebreen and Kongsvegen, in Kongsfjorden, Svalbard
In recent years, warmer Atlantic-origin waters have intruded into Svalbard's west- coast fjords. To predict the e ects of the TAW (transformed Atlantic water) intrusion on the ice margin of tidewater glaciers, a detailed ...
Calibrating annual sedimentation in a glacial lake Lake Linné, Svalbard, Norway
This study will focus on the most recent depositional year, fall 2010 through summer 2011. The study is a continuation of previous projects and investigates modern sedimentation in Lake Linné in order to formulate a ...
Slope Processes of Linnédalen, Spitsbergen: Sedimentation through Avalanching
During late July and the beginning of August 2010 a field study on slope processes was developed in Linnédalen, central Spitsbergen (figure 1). The aim of this project is to analyze slope processes in the region focusing ...
A Karst Lake System in the High Arctic: A Case Study at Linnédalen, Svalbard
The island of Spitsbergen, which makes up the largest portion of the Svalbard archipelago, is located in the high arctic, between 74° and 81° north. This high latitude Arctic environment provides the means for widespread ...
Short-term Glacial Calving Processes at Kronebreen-Kongsvegen, Svalbard
Calving is an important component of glacier mass loss, but it remains difficult to model and directly influences sedimentological processes at the ice margin. As part of the Svalbard REU, this study aims to characterize ...
