  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. A Regional Analysis of Changing Climate Conditions and Glacier Mass Balance in Svalbard

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Ottar Bergman; [2019]
    Keywords : glacier mass balance; model data; climate change; Svalbard;

    Abstract : The Arctic archipelago of Svalbard has experienced among the greatest increases in temperature on Earth in the last few decades. The changing climatic conditions have a large impact on the glacier mass balance. This study makes use of a highresolution model dataset with data on climatic and glacier conditions on Svalbard from 1957 to 2018. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cold Surface Layer Dynamics of Storglaciären, Northern Sweden 2009-2019

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Shunan Feng; [2019]
    Keywords : Storglaciären; cold surface layer; cold-temperate transition surface; polythermal glacier; Storglaciären; kallt ytskikt; kall-tempererad is; polyterrmal glaciär;

    Abstract : Storglaciären is a sub-Arctic polythermal glacier in northern Sweden. Twenty years' monitoring of thecold surface layer found that it has lost one third of its total volume of cold ice with an average thinningrate of 0.80 ± 0.24 m·a-1 for the period of 1989-2009. READ MORE

  4. 4. Climate Change and Precipitation Variability Influence on the Greenland Ice Sheet

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik

    Author : Jennie Olsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Physics; Ice Sheet; Surface Mass Balance; SMB; Representative Concentration Pathways; RCP; Climate Change; Greenland; Precipitation; Precipitation Variability; Glaciers; Glacier; Meteorology; Greenhouse Effect; Greenhouse Gas; Future Climate; Climate; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Climate changes have a large impact on precipitation patterns and precipitation variability change. With this in mind, precipitation over Greenland is studied. This is done for present day precipitation model data from 1991-2010 compared to future model simulations of precipitation for 2081-2100. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
