Landscape morphodynamics in the high Arctic - Billefjorden basin, Svalbard (LaMoBil)

The project aim is to describe in details morphogenetic environments contemporarily functioning within the borders of Billefjorden basin, a region located in the central part of Spitsbergen, Svalbard, and to make an attempt to quantify geomorphic processes activity causing relief transformations and generation of new landforms.

Summary

The project aim is to describe in details morphogenetic environments contemporarily functioning within the borders of Billefjorden basin, a region located in the central part of Spitsbergen, Svalbard, and to make an attempt to quantify geomorphic processes activity causing relief transformations and generation of new landforms. Researches in functioning of contemporary morphogenesis of polar areas in the surroundings of Petunia Bay (Billefjorden) in central Spitsbergen have been initiated by Poznan University in the 80-ies of the last century. They are continued by a series of scientific expeditions until present. Investigations are covering a wide range of natural environment components of this part of Spitsbergen, diversified in respect of geology, climate, relief energy, geo-cryology, plant coverage and dynamics of their colonization. The previous experiences as geomorphological mapping in surroundings of Petuniabukta and stationary measurements of natural environment components changeability, will serve as a base for the extension of field studies over the whole area of Billefjorden basin, to compile a geomorphological map in the scale 1:50000, compatible with existing geological sources of information, to be the most significant output of the project.
