Investigating glacier velocities and basal friction with physics-based machine learning (KLIMAFORSK)

This proposal seeks funding to bring Dr. Jordi Bolibar to University of Oslo's Njord Centre for a research stay of 6 weeks to initiate a project investigating glacier basal friction using machine learning. The physics that dictates glacier motion are controlled by the friction between the glacier...

International Collaboration at the Leading Edge of Ice Sheet Research

Current predictions of sea level rise remain uncertain because the future behavior of melting ice sheets is not well understood. In order to equip society with the best forecasts of sea level rise for planning, scientists need to improve the ability to numerically simulate (with computer models) ...

Subglacial multi-sensor probe development

The sliding of ice across its base dominates the transfer of water locked in glaciers and ice sheets to the ocean, considerably contributing to ongoing and future sea level rise. However, processes at the base of glaciers are still insufficiently understood due to challenges in accessing and reli...

Drone-mapping Surging Glaciers in Svalbard, RIS-ID 11861

Surging glaciers are of great interest as their behavior gives insights into glacier dynamic processes. Svalbard is one of the few clusters in the world where surging glaciers exist. Recently, two glacier systems that are easily accessible from Longyearbyen started surging. This project will use ...

Global glacier modeling: Do non-linear feedbacks matter for century-scale projections?

Isbreer over hele verden trekker seg tilbake og blir tynnere på grunn av global oppvarming. Dette påvirker direkte havnivåstigning, vannføring i elver og brerelaterte farer. Resultater fra numeriske modeller som simulerer breendringene inn i fremtiden har vist at betydelige bremassetap vil fortse...
