Abstract:
Recent research at Arctic latitudes has demonstrated the close association between glacier hydrology and ice dynamics and a resultant sensitivity of high-latitude ice masses to climatic forcing. However, both hydraulic architecture and functionality remain poorly characterised or constrained in these glaciers. Therefore, in order to investigate the structure, functioning and dynamics of an Arctic glacier's hydrological system, this research presents an integrated study of Midtre Lovénbreen, Svalbard, using a variety of analytical techniques for comprehensive hydrometeorological data collected during field campaigns in 2004 and 2005.
