Seasonal and Inter-annual Fluctuations of Ice Velocities on Five Svalbard GlaciersEntry ID: Flow_Arctic_Glaciers_Tijm-Reijmer_IPY37_NL
Abstract: In order to improve our understanding of the relation between meltwater input and sliding velocities we measure seasonal and inter-annual fluctuations of ice velocities on five Svalbard glaciers. These glaciers are:
Nordenskiöldbreen,data available April 2006 - April 2011.
Kronebreen, data available September 2008 - March 2011.
Vestfonna, data available May 2008 - May 2010.
Duvebreen, Austfonna, data available May 2008 - May 2011.
Basin no3, Austfonna, data available May 2008 - May 2011.
On each glacier 5 to 10 receivers are placed on a central flowline ranging from close to the front to above the equilibriumline altitude.
