The water supply to Longyearbyen: understanding the present system and its future uncertainties (Water to Longyearbyen)

Longyearbyen is a growing Arctic community whose water supply is directly dependent upon a climatically sensitive, diminishing resource: meltwater. An observation network of snow, glacier, permafrost, runoff and sediment transfer processes in the Idammen watershed is therefore vital for future water supply planning and conservation in the Endalen a

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

Longyearbyen is a growing Arctic community whose water supply is directly dependent upon a climatically sensitive, diminishing resource: meltwater. An observation network of snow, glacier, permafrost, runoff and sediment transfer processes in the Idammen watershed is therefore vital for future water supply planning and conservation in the Endalen area. We will therefore develop a scientific basis for efficient management of the water resources by: 1)Estimating the quantity of water available for municipal water supply to Longyearbyen; 2)Quantifying sediment delivery to Isdammen; 3)Monitoring the quality of water delivered to Longyearbyen's water treatment facility.
