  1. 1. Force Budget Analysis of Glacier Flow : Ice Dynamical Studies on Storglaciären, Sweden, and Ice Flow Investigations of Outlet Glaciers in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica

    Author : Jim Hedfors; Veijo Pohjola; Else Kolstrup; Niels Reeh; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical geography and sedimentology; force budget; ice flux; ice dynamics; mass balance; strain heating; climate change; Storglaciären; Dronning Maud Land; Antarctica; Naturgeografi och sedimentologi; Physical geography; Naturgeografi;

    Abstract : This thesis contributes to the understanding of glacier response to climate change by ice dynamical studies on Storglaciären, Sweden, and Bonnevie-Svendsenbreen, Kibergbreen and Plogbreen in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. Ice surface velocities, ice geometry and temperature information is fed through a force budget model to calculate ice mass outflux of these glacial systems via three-dimensional stress distributions for a flux-gate.

  2. 2. Dynamics of the cold surface layer of polythermal Storglaciären, Sweden

    Author : Rickard Pettersson; Per Holmlund; Peter Janssson; Jens-Ove Näslund; Regine Hock; Helgi Björnsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; polythermal glacier; cold surface layer; ground-penetrating radar; spatial variability; water content; Storglaciären; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : Polythermal glaciers, i.e. glaciers with a combination of ice at and below the freezing point, are widespread in arctic and subarctic environments. The polythermal structure has major implications for glacier hydrology, ice flow and glacial erosion. READ MORE

  3. 3. Response of glaciers to climate change : Mass balance sensitivity, sea level rise and runoff

    Author : Mattias de Woul; Regine Hock; Peter Jansson; Margareta Hansson; Roger J. Braithwaite; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glacier; mass balance modelling; mass balance sensitivity; sea level rise; glacial runoff; Hofsjökull; Storglaciären; Physical geography; Naturgeografi; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to enhance our understanding of the response of glaciers to climate change. Global sea level is affected by changes in glacier ice volume, and melt-water from glaciers is a principal water source in many regions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ice dynamical studies on Storglaciären, Sweden : a study based on TV-video observations of englacial structures and deformation measurements within boreholes

  5. 5. Hydrological processes in firn on Storglaciären, Sweden

    Author : Thomas Schneider; Andrew G. Fountain; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Geography; Physical Geography; geografi med naturgeografisk inriktning;

    Abstract : Understanding hydrological processes in temperate glaciers is important for both scientific and practical issues. Modelling glacier response to climatic change and the use of water from glaciers for electric power generation are some topics that require detailed information on water storage and drainage in glaciers.
