Sedimentology of the Aspelintoppen Formation (Eocene-Oligocene), Brogniartfjella, Svalbard
(The University of Bergen, 2014-12-09)
The following study investigate the vertical changes in fluvial channel and interchannel geometry and facies architecture of the Aspelintoppen Formation in the Cenozoic Central Basin on Svalbard. Sedimentary structures was ...
Time-lapse techniques for surface velocity, front position and calving rate measurement of a fast-flowing tidewater glacier in Svalbard
(The University of Bergen, 2015-05-31)
Calving is the mechanical loss of icebergs from tidewater glaciers, responsible for 70% of the annual transfer of mass from the cryosphere to the ocean (van der Veen 1998a, 2002). To be able to correctly predict future ...
A study of the ichnology, lithology and reservoir quality of the Palaeogene Grumantbyen Formation on Svalbard
(The University of Bergen, 2016-11-10)
The Palaeogene Grumantbyen Formation is one of the least understood formations in the geology of Svalbard. The objective of this thesis was to get a better understanding of the sedimentological development and ...
The deglaciation of Kongsfjorden, Svalbard —based on surface exposure dating of glacial erratics and Quaternary geological mapping of Blomstrandhalvøya
(The University of Bergen, 2016-05-27)
Surface exposure dating via 10Be cosmogenic nuclide dating is used, alongside Quaternary geological mapping of landforms and sediments, to reconstruct the course of deglaciation following the Late Weichselian Glacial Maximum ...
Reconstruction of glacier variability from lake sediments reveals dynamic Holocene climate in Svalbard
The Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth. Holocene proxy time-series are increasingly used to put this amplified response in perspective by understanding Arctic climate processes beyond the instrumental ...
Holocene multi-proxy environmental reconstruction from lake Hakluytvatnet, Amsterdamøya Island, Svalbard (79.5°N)
High resolution proxy records of past climate are sparse in the Arctic due to low organic production that restricts the use of radiocarbon dating and challenging logistics that make data collection difficult. Here, we ...
