SVALHOLA - Svalbard Holocene Assembly on Glaciers and Climate

Studying past shifts in high latitude glaciers and climate through the current interglacial (the Holocene, covering the last c. 12000 years) allows us to better understand the role of the Arctic in the global climate system and to more effectively predict antecedent climate scenarios. Due to Sval...

Kongsvegen: INitiation of a Glacier Surge (KINGSurge)

Kongsvegen is a surge-type glacier in Svalbard that last surged in 1948. Ongoing GPS measurements have indicated that the glacier has started to accelerate, and another surge may be imminent. The early detection of an incipient surge is exceptionally rare, and we have a short window of opportunit...

The process of snow-ice formation and its impact on young Arctic sea ice, RiS-ID 10915

The Arctic region is experiencing a change from thick multiyear to much younger and thinner sea ice. In many places, increasing precipitation is leading to higher snow loads on young sea ice. Hence seawater can infiltrate the snow layer through pathways in the ice or from the side. Consequently p...
