Fluvial suspended sediment transport from cold and warm-based glaciers in Svalbard

Description :
This paper presents a quantitative comparison of proglacial suspended sediment transport dynamics in three contrasting arctic glacier basins : one largely cold-based glacier (Austre Brøggerbreen), one largely warm-based glacier (Finsterwalderbreen) and one intermediate polythermal glacier (Erdmannbreen). Temporal dynamics of the different suspended sediment transport systems will be inferred from the structure of statistical models which best explain the variance of proglacial suspended sediment concentration, SSC. The system properties the AA. seek to elucidate are those which govern sediment availability, sediment supply and meltwater pathway in the different basins.
