Radar mapping of the perennial firn aquifer on Holtedahlfonna, Svalbard

Awarded: NOK 79,999

The objective of this project is to collect radar data required as part of a larger project investigating the flow of the tidewater glacier Kronebreen and its connected icefield, Holtedahlfonna, in NW Svalbard. This proposal seeks funding for a radar field campaign on Holtedahlfonna, using both established and new methods of radio-echo sounding, to study the properties of a recently discovered perennial firn aquifer.
