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.
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 ...
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 ...
