Mineralogical Analysis of Primary and Secondary Source Sediments to Linnévatnet, Spitsbergen, Svalbard
Lauren's project focused on discerning the sources of sediment (using geochemistry) entering Lake Linne' from the surrounding drainage basin including the main meltwater inflow, the surrounding hillslopes and reworked marine muds
Using Geochemical Evidence to Determine Provenance in a High Arctic Glacier-Fed Lake, Linné Valley, Svalbard, Norway
Elizabeth studied the geochemistry of the various sediment source areas in the Linne' Valley. She also attempted to reconstruct the relative contribution of these different source areas by looking at down-core data
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Effects of Flooding on Connecticut River Plant Species
Due to dam construction and other human influences, patterns of river water flow, including the timing and duration of flooding, have become increasingly stable in wetlands. Flooding is a natural disturbance event that ...
