  1. 6. Thermodynamics of the Subsurface of Glaciers with Insights from Lomonosovfonna Ice Field at Svalbard

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten och landskapslära; Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten och landskapslära

    Författare :Enise Shala; Caroline Svanholm; [2018]
    Nyckelord :temperature; glacier; refreezing; thermal conductivity; simulation; temperatur; glaciär; återfrysning; värmeledningsförmåga; simulering;

    Sammanfattning : Glaciers are important components of the Earth's environment and are mainly found in polar and high elevation areas. They are crucial for understanding the past, ongoing and upcoming environmental changes, relevant for fresh water supply, logistical and recreational purposes. LÄS MER

  2. 7. Modeling response of glacier discharge to future climate change, Gacier No.1, Ürümqi

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Shi Jieying; [2018]
    Nyckelord :sustainable development; climate change; glacier; discharge model; water supply;

    Sammanfattning : Glaciers are known to be prone to climate change. The Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China, has approximately 20,000 glaciers, which accounts for half number of glaciers in China. LÄS MER

  3. 8. Glacial history of the upper Drac Blanc catchment (French Alps)

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Felix Martin Hofmann; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography; 10Be exposure dating; structure-from motion; geomorphological mapping; moraine; equilibrium line altitude; Alps; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    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

  4. 9. Periglacial and glacial landform mapping in the Las Veguitas catchment, Cordillera Frondal of the Andes (Argentina).

    Master-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Författare :Eirini Makopoulou; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Geomorphological map; thermokarst lakes; glaciers; GIS; Argentinian Andes; spatial and temporal analysis;

    Sammanfattning : The semi-arid and arid Andes of South America are characterized by large areas with glacial and periglacial environments. This study focusses on the distribution of glacial and periglacial landforms in the Las Veguitas catchment, Cordillera Frontal, Argentina. LÄS MER

  5. 10. Central Asian ice-marginal moraines of the global last glacial maximum : An analysis of topographic features affecting the glaciation pattern in the Tian Shan and Altai mountains

    Kandidat-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Författare :Sonja Sandström; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Altaimountains; GeographicInformation System; Tian Shan mountains; water resources; marginal moraine; MIS 2; paleoglaciology;

    Sammanfattning : Glacial runoff from the Tian Shan and Altai Mountains is an important water resource, especially for people living in the arid areas of Central Asia. Measured water volumes from glaciers have decreased, and glacier area have shrunk with 50-90% since the Little Ice Age. LÄS MER
