  1. 1. Mass Balance of the High-Arctic Glacier Nordenskiöldbreen, Svalbard, in a Changing Climate

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Maja Gustavsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Mass balance; glacier; Nordenskiöldbreen; climate change; Massbalans; glaciär; Nordenskiöldbreen; klimatförändringar;

    Abstract : Melting glaciers are the major contributor to sea level rise. Glaciers are sensitive indicators of climate change and current experience strong developments in a rapidly warming Arctic environment. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Ability of Regional Climate Models to Simulate Weather Conditions on Nordenskiöldbreen, Svalbard

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära; Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Malin Andersson; Erica Erikson; [2018]
    Keywords : Regional climate models; automatic weather station; glacier; Svalbard; Regionala klimatmodeller; automatisk väderstation; glaciär; Svalbard;

    Abstract : In this project, we analyse the ability of two regional climate models to simulate meteorological conditions on Nordenskiöldbreen, a glacier in Svalbard. To do so, regional climate model output is compared with in situ measurements from an automatic weather station. READ MORE

  3. 3. Meteorological Conditions on Nordenskiöldbreen Glacier, Svalbard (2009 – 2015)

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Niclas Bergman; [2017]
    Keywords : Svalbard; Nordenskiöldbreen; glacier; albedo; Svalbard; Nordenskiöldbreen; glaciär; albedo;

    Abstract : Glacial environments in the Arctic are a much-studied topic as well as a field of research with strong influences regarding the current and future global climate of our planet. This report is focused on the meteorological conditions on Nordenskiöldbreen glacier from 2009-2015 and how they correlate with each other, the glacier surface and the surrounding terrain. READ MORE

  4. 4. Seasonal Velocities on Nordenskiöldbreen, Svalbard

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Lena Elisa Ehwald; [2016]
    Keywords : Nordenskiöldbreen; Svalbard; velocity; glaciers; climate change; mass balance; dynamical behaviour of glaciers; Glaciär; Svalbard; Nordenski öldbreen; isflöde; massbalans; klimatuppvärmnin;

    Abstract : Global warming leads to increased precipitation in the Arctic, as warmer air can carry more moisture. The consequence is that many arctic glaciers get steeper slopes over time as increased melt at their lower part causes thinning and increased solid precipitation in their upper regions leads to thickening of the glacier.

  5. 5. Long-term glacier mass balance of Nordenskiöldbreen, Svalbard

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Sara Wiklund; [2016]
    Keywords : Mass balance; climate change; glacier; Svalbard; Massbalans; klimatförändring; glaciär; Svalbard;

    Abstract : The global warming that’s taking place have an impact over the Earth and the glaciers on Svalbard are undergoing rapid changes as a result. The annual air temperature has been rising on Svalbard since the early 1900’s and in a climate projection expected temperatures continue to rise. READ MORE
