  1. 1. Subsurface fluxes of mass and energy at the accumulation zone of Lomonosovfonna ice cap, Svalbard

    Author : Sergey Marchenko; Veijo Pohjola; Rickard Pettersson; Carleen Reijmer; Thomas Schuler; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glacier; ice sheet; sea level; runoff; ice; firn; snow; stratigraphy; density; core; radar; thermistor; temperature; preferential water flow; thermal conductivity; water content; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot naturgeografi; Earth Science with specialization in Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Glaciers cover ca 10% of the Earth's land and are found in the high altitudes and latitudes. They are important components of environmental systems due to the multiple feedbacks linking them with the atmosphere, hydrosphere and periglacial landscapes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Geographical Distribution of Disasters Caused by Natural Hazards in Data-scarce Areas : Methodological exploration on the Samala River catchment, Guatemala

    Author : Agnes Jane Soto Gómez; Veijo Pohjola; Allan Rodhe; Giuliano di Baldassarre; Günter Blöschl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; natural disasters; Guatemala; data-scarce areas; natural disaster science methods; natural disaster maps; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot naturgeografi; Earth Science with specialization in Physical Geography;

    Abstract : An increasing trend in both the number of disasters and affected people has been observed, especially during the second half of the 20th century. The physical, economic and social impact that natural hazards have had on a global scale has prompted an increasing interest of governments, international institutions and the academia. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling calving and sliding of Svalbard outlet glaciers : Spatio-temporal changes and interactions

    Author : Dorothée Vallot; Rickard Pettersson; Veijo Pohjola; Ken Mattsson; Tómas Jóhannesson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cryospheric science; glacier modelling; time-lapse imagery; undercutting; sliding inversion; discrete particle model; calving model; subglacial hydrology; sliding law; automatic detection method; calving events size and frequency; ocean interaction; melt water runoff; ice dynamics; ice flow model; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot naturgeografi; Earth Science with specialization in Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Future sea level rise associated to global warming is one of the greatest societal and environmental challenges of tomorrow. A large part of the contribution comes from glaciers and ice sheets discharging ice and meltwater into the ocean and the recent worldwide increase is worrying. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of inland waters in the carbon cycle at high latitudes

    Author : Erik Lundin; Jan Karlsson; Reiner Giesler; Robert Striegl; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; lakes; streams; carbon C ; carbon dioxide CO2 ; methane CH4 ; dissolved inorganic carbon DIC ; boreal; sub-arctic; arctic; emission; sediments; burial; budget; limnologi; Limnology; Earth Sciences with Specialization Environmental Analysis; geovetenskap med inriktning mot miljöanalys; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Understanding the drivers of climate change requires knowledge about the global carbon (C) cycle. Although inland waters play an important role in the C cycle by emitting and burying C, streams and lakes are in general overlooked in bottom-up approached C budgets. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of the Laitaure Delta, Swedish Lappland : A Study of Growth, Distributary Forms and Processes

    Author : Hans Andrén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Recent delta formation; hydraulic geometry; distributary forms and processes; X-ray radiography; Sarek; Lappland; Earth Science with specialization in Physical Geography; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Deltaic processes were studied on the Laitaure delta. Specific aims were to: analyse forms and processes in distributaries with regard to hydraulic geometry relationships; investigate the distribution of water into different distributaries; analyse the morphological development of the delta; and quantify the advance of the delta front.
