Description :
This paper examines characteristics of meteorological and runoff time-series collected from the Scott Glacier catchment during 2005 and 2006. The river discharge was monitored at a gauging station situated near the mouth of Recherche Fjord. Meteorological time-series (air temperature and precipitation) were monitored in Calypsobyen. The analysis shows interrelationships between meteorological and hydrological time-series, and that the runoff of Scottelva (Scott River) depends on the amount and intensity of glacial ablation. A total of 64% and 72% of the discharge from the Scottelva in the respective 2005 and 2006 seasons came from surface ablation of the glacier.
