Cryosphere reactions against the background of environmental changes in contrasting high-Arctic conditions on Svalbard (CRYORSVA)

Based on systematic observations performed in the Arctic (Spitsbergen, Svalbard), the research will focus on the problem of cryosphere state and contemporary processes of its transformation course diagnosis, considering different characteristics of water circulation and its storage (glacierized, i.e. partly glaciers covered, and non-glacierized – m

Summary

Based on systematic observations performed in the Arctic (Spitsbergen, Svalbard), the research will focus on the problem of cryosphere state and contemporary processes of its transformation course diagnosis, considering different characteristics of water circulation and its storage (glacierized, i.e. partly glaciers covered, and non-glacierized – might have been glaciated in the past but currently holding no glacier ice) in conditions of uneven in time and space permafrost distribution. Particularly this research will concentrate on the identification of mechanisms governing energy exchange between atmosphere, terrestrial glacier cover and frozen ground with seasonally active, during months with positive air temperature and energy supply, active surface layer. There are two main intended project aims: a) to determine seasonal changeability of the structure and dynamics of the permafrost active layer and the temperature distribution in deeper, permanently frozen substratum in diverse variants of high Arctic climate; b) to compare the balance state and reactions on climate change of two small (2-3 km2 of ice coverage area) valley glaciers located within regions of contrasting climatic conditions of Spitsbergen in relation to other cryosphere components.
