1. Processes of lateral moraine formation at a debris-covered glacier, Suldenferner (Vedretta di Solda), ItalyMaster-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen
Sammanfattning : Lateral moraines are key features of glacial landscapes in high-alpine mountain areas. Research on lateral moraine formation is mostly limited to clean-ice glaciers; lateral moraine formation at the margins of debris-covered glaciers is currently poorly understood in an Alpine and sedimentological context.

- Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap
Sammanfattning : Glacier advances in the Écrins massif (French Alps) during the Late Glacial and the Early Holocene are poorly constrained. Based on field observations, a high-resolution digital elevation model and an orthophoto, glacial landforms in the upper Drac Blanc catchment were mapped. LÄS MER
3. Investigating methods for identifying paleo surge-type glaciers or highly dynamical ice flows in Trygghamn, west SpitsbergenMaster-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi
Sammanfattning : Surge-type glaciers exhibit a cyclic behaviour with an ice mass increase in the reservoir area during the inactive, quiescent phase and a rapid transportation of ice during the active, surge phase. In order to interpret the effects of climate change correctly it is important to distinguish between advances of surge-type glaciers and those of ‘normal’ glaciers, caused by climatic fluctuations.

- Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper
Sammanfattning : The global warming that’s taking place have an impact over the Earth and the glaciers on Svalbard are undergoing rapid changes as a result. The annual air temperature has been rising on Svalbard since the early 1900’s and in a climate projection expected temperatures continue to rise. LÄS MER
5. External Conditions Effects on the Self-Organised Criticality of the Calving Glacier Front of Tunabreen, SvalbardMaster-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper
Sammanfattning : Mass balance processes in glaciers are important for determining the growth or retreat of ice. Calving, the mechanical breakage of ice bergs from a glacier front, is a poorly understood phenomenon. This process has great importance to the mass balance of many glaciers, for example on Antarctica and in the Arctic. A recent paper by Åström et al. LÄS MER
