Characterizing fjord oceanography near tidewater glaciers Kronebreen and Kongsvegen, in Kongsfjorden, Svalbard (2012-07-03)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 ...
(2012-07-03)Quantifying estuarine circulation and the resulting sediment dynamics of tidewater glaciers is crucial to developing an understanding of these dynamic systems, and their response to climate and sea level change. This study ...
Gravity Core Geochemistry at the Kronebreen Glacier, Svalbard, Norway: Quantifying Climate Flux in a Glacimarine Setting (2012-07-03)Darren's thesis looks at the geochemistry and lithosstratigraphy of six cores recovered along a proximal to distal transect in Kongsfjord.
USING SEDIMENT GEOCHEMISTRY, PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION AND REMOTE SENSING TO STUDY PROVENANCE IN THE KRONERBREEN/KONGSVEGEN GLACIERS, WEST SPITSBERGEN, SVALBARD (2012-07-03)Sediment provenance at the Kronerbreen/Kongsvegen glaciers in Spitsbergen can be used to understand the effects that climate change can have on the sedimentation in fjords, and streams at northern latitudes. These sediments ...
