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.
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 ...
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 ...
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.
Glaciomarine Oceanographic and Suspended Sediment Dynamics, Kongsbreen system, Svalbard
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 ...
USING SEDIMENT GEOCHEMISTRY, PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION AND REMOTE SENSING TO STUDY PROVENANCE IN THE KRONERBREEN/KONGSVEGEN GLACIERS, WEST SPITSBERGEN, SVALBARD
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 ...
Cryoconite Evolution and Formation on an Arctic Glacier Surface: A Case Study and Model
Cryoconite holes are vertical cylindrical holes that form on glacier surfaces due to the lower albedo of sediments. Cryoconite holes exist on Linn ebreen, Svalbard over the entirety of the glacier. They preferentially ...
Analysis of Varved Sediment and Weather Relationships in Lake Linnè, Svalbard
The recent debate involving climate change has become increasingly important in the past decade. Arctic environments are important locations for study as they are particularly sensitive to climate variations. Proglacial ...
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 ...
