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 ...
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 ...
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 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 ...
