Protracted active surge phase in the high arctic (Svalbard) : dynamic development and morphological impact

Auteur :
LØNNE, I.

Description :
Glacial surges in Svalbard are protracted and characterized by individual dynamic evolution, in contrast to many other areas, which calls for a subdivision of the classic two-phased surge cycle. A dominating part of the ice masses seem to have a surge potential and this represents a considerable challenge for paleoclimatic studies. Glaciological and geological models therefore need to be coupled. The issue is discussed with Fridtjovbreen glacier as an example.
