  4. 4. Dead-Ice Under Different Climate Conditions: Processes, Landforms, Sediments and Melt Rates in Iceland and Svalbard

    University dissertation from Quaternary Sciences, Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Anders Schomacker; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; klimatologi; glacier; dead-ice; surge; ice-cored; Little Ice Age; fysisk geografi; Geologi; Geology; Svalbard; Iceland; Sedimentology; cartography; pedology; geomorphology; Sedimentologi; Physical geography; geomorfologi; marklära; kartografi; climatology;

    Abstract : Modern dead-ice environments in the glacier forefields of Brúarjökull, Iceland and Holmströmbreen, Svalbard were investigated with focus on landform and sediment genesis, as well as quantification of melting. Field monitoring and studies of multi-temporal aerial photographs, satellite imagery, and Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) provided data for the melting quantification. READ MORE

  5. 5. Holocene development of Lake Lögurinn and Eyjabakkajökull : a multi-proxy approach

    University dissertation from Department of Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Johan Striberger; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Iceland; the Holocene; lake sediments; varves; glacial meltwater variability; surge periodicity; palaeoclimate;

    Abstract : The North Atlantic region has experienced significant climate fluctuations during the Holocene. It has been shown that these fluctuations affected the terrestrial environment in Iceland, including its glaciers and ice caps. READ MORE
